Re: Video Data
I agree. They are becoming so popular. I enjoy them and I think a lot more people now watch videos from their phones than on actual tv's.

Re: Zero rating and battery life
@batye I don't know if it fits everyone's needs, but it works for me. My daughter also signed up for a pay-as-you-go plan for her phone now, though with the purchase, the first month's service was a higher tier plan that included data.

Re: Zero rating and battery life
@batye I also use Pay-as-you-go plans. I'm a very light user, so it didn't make sense to shell out so much per month for something that doesn't get used so much.

Re: LTE-B & Use cases
This is Jason. Great question. I think that as more MSOs launch IPTV solutions (to enable their subs to watch broadcast content wherever they are), it will make a lot more sense for a multicast solution like LTE-B. In my opinion, LTE-B + IPTV = DVB (without the need for a special chip in the handset). So not just sports and one-off events but true linear broadcast to the handset.

Re: Zero rating and battery life
This is Jason. To answer your question, it would be a case-by-case situation. Zero-rated traffic is paid for by the content owner. They could elect to do that or no to. Otherwise, it would come out of the consumer data plan (unless they downloaded the content over wifi which would probably be the case most of the time).

As to the battery, yes, I'm sure there would be an impact as the radio would be engaged during download (and that is a major drain on the battery).

Re: Zero rating and battery life
@elizabethv I change all my contracts for the cells on Pay-As-you Go, with only WiFi data... but in Canada we do have many horror stories - http://www.cbc.ca/news/business/forum-cellphone-data-overage-1.3497123
