The new chairman of FCC Ajit Pai dropped the inquiries into zero-rated data. Such offerings are T-Mobile’s Bing-On, AT&T’s DirecTV and Verizon’s Go90.
According to Pai the free-data plans have proven to be popular among consumers, particularly low-income Americans, and have enhanced competition in the wireless marketplace.
Going forward, the Federal Communications Commission will not focus on denying Americans free data. Instead, we will concentrate on expanding broadband deployment and encouraging innovative service offerings.
