T-Mobile CEO John Legere Defends His Streaming Plan Against “Bullshit” Complaints From “Jerks” at Google

Tim Fernholz, reporting for Quartz:

In a video rant released this morning, T-Mobile CEO John Legere responded to complaints about its video service from Google and open internet advocates, calling his critics “jerks” whose critiques are “bullshit” designed to bolster their companies and confuse his customers.

I love this guy. I wouldn’t call the video a “rant” at all.

Unfortunately (for T-Mobile), the EFF thinks the “Binge On” service is definitely throttling, because it applies to all video, not just video from the publishers who have joined the program.

Update: Legere’s answer to the EFF.
