    Default T-Mobile adds more services to Music Freedom

    T-Mobile added more to their music freedom... Sadly Google music is still coming "later this year".

    T-Mobile also said since the beginning of Music Freedom (June) customers have Streamed 7k TB of music.

    T-Mobile adds six streaming services to Music Freedom, Google Play Music support coming later this year | Android Central

    whoohoo!!! I do stream a lot of Spotify now that I have T-Mo, I admit. Downside? I now have to charge my phone throughout the day hehe. Weird that Grooveshark is making these deals; I thought they weren't in good legal standings.

    7k tb might seem like a lot, but considering that tmobile has about 50 million subscribers, that comes out to 140mb per person. Granted not everyone is on the simple choice plan, but let's assume a third are. That is still only 420mb per person.

    I've used around 1.5GB out of Spotify alone in a little over two weeks o_O. I wish there was a way to tell the Android Data Monitor to ignore certain apps now haha I have to 'manually' substract Spotify traffic from everything else to see if how I'm doing.

    I suspect it's like any other kind of data usage: some people are using the hell out of it, while others aren't using it much if at all.

    I'd be curious to know what it is about Google Play Music that's taking so long to integrate into their system.

    Deals. The free streaming doesn't really come for free. A deal must be made between T-Mo and Google so that the service can be given out, free of charge, to T-Mo's users ($$$$$). The house never loses, remember?

    John Legere specifically said that the services weren't paying T-Mobile as part of the Music Freedom deal.

    I still think they have to reach some sort of deal. If not moneywise, then in some other way.

    The deal is them working together so T-Mobile knows what server is sending the traffic and they can "White list" that data so it won't count on their network. Other than that there is no real "deal" only a gain really for that company to have their customer's data not count on T-Mobile.

    Interesting that they added Grooveshark considering all the legal issues they have had.

    Or use the TMo app and see exactly what the carrier shows for data use.

    Also even though it is never mentioned Audio Addict (DI.fm, RadioTunes etc)is unlimited. I stream for hours and even at home turned off WiFi and listened for DI.fm for over a hour using its app and it did not use one byte of data. What uses data is if I open up Chrome and browse a website.

    Well I think for this deal with these companies are more like hey you like music then come to us plus when you know
    that these company big wigs is getting some type of kick back maybe it's a deal where they get a huge discounts on service and so they say here you go we give you this if you give us this

    doubt it. Legere specifically stated that music freedom doesn't go against the principles of net neutrality because tmobile doesn't make any money from these companies.

    Yeah they don't do anything of this nature. T-Mobile is doing this to simply benefit their customers with no data usage on music streaming.

    The companies that are apart of it just get the benefit of customers maybe using their service since it doesn't use data... The companies get no incentives, perks, kick backs, price breaks, or anything of that nature.

    there are no kickbacks. The whole point of net neutrality is so you don't get something similar to att's ads. You push att some $$$ to get stuff through the web with no charge to the consumer. In tmobile's case, no one wins except the consumer and maybe the streaming service. The key to tmobile's music freedom is the "limited" number of streaming services
