Netflix admits to secretly throttling mobile video
March 25, 2016 - Uncategorized
Netflix admitted Thursday to throttling video streams worldwide for its mobile users, but said it hasn’t been an issue for customers.
The video streaming company plans to roll out to its members sometime in May a ‘data saver’ feature, allowing them greater control over their data usage when streaming on mobile networks.
Users will then be able to “either stream more video under a smaller data plan, or increase their video quality if they have a higher data plan,” wrote Anne Marie Squeo, a spokeswoman for the company, in a blog post.
