LOS ANGELES -- Will T-Mobile do the unthinkable and offer streaming video that doesn't count against its customers' data caps?
That's the speculation as the nation's third-largest wireless carrier prepares to kick off another event in its "Uncarrier" campaign on Tuesday. Each move has brought something to tweak the industry norms, whether it's the elimination of wireless contracts or the offer of free international data and text messages. That's led to better deals and incentives for consumers.
T-Mobile's latest Uncarrier announcement could potentially let you watch videos on services such as Netflix or HBO Go without. That's a huge deal since video is the biggest culprit when it comes to data consumption.
The tagline to the invitation, "We never hit pause," also suggests the news will be related to video.
It's unclear how T-Mobile would be able to offer such a service, since the cost to carry such immense data could be burdensome to the carrier. T-Mobile says it has the right to throttle, or slow the connection, of any unlimited data customer who uses more than 23 gigabytes of data a month, or more than 90 minutes of video a day.
You won't have to speculate too long, since T-Mobile's "Uncarrier X" event kicks off at 11 a.m. PT/2 p.m. ET. You can watch the live stream embedded below, or click here.
CNET will have full coverage of the event, including the news, analysis and interviews with the T-Mobile executives.
