Several days ago, we reported that T-Mobile was allowing data from select music streaming sites to be exempt from customers data caps. Now, T-Mobile is exempting data generated from select network speed-testing apps.
In a statement provided to FierceWireless today, T-Mobile stated:
“The Ookla Speedtest.net application is designed to measure true network speed–not show that a customer has exceeded their high-speed data bucket. Other speed test providers are also whitelisted.”
Basically, T-Mobile wants customers to know their network speeds without effecting their monthly data allotments. T-Mobile continues telling those worried about net neutrality violations that they are not accepting payments of any kind from the exempt sites/programs.
According to TMONews, this exemption started last week.
