Is Streaming Busting Your Mobile Data Plan? Now There’s an App for That
September 14, 2017
Mobile data hogs on data-capped plans have a new option for avoiding massive overage fees if they’ve been bingeing on video, audio, social media, games or other apps.
A new service, Freeway Overpass, gives users on AT&T and Verizon Wireless usage-capped plans the ability to use an unlimited amount of selected data-heavy mobile apps and content by paying a few dollars per month.
To launch Freeway Overpass, Seattle-based Syntonic has lined up content providers including YouTube, Facebook, Spotify, HBO, Twitter, NBC Sports and ESPN for various all-you-can-eat packages. Netflix is the one notable data-hungry app that’s not currently in the Freeway Overpass mix.
