The charge, from Verizon’s p.r. director Chuck Hamby, came in response to Legere’s claim that the No. 1 mobile carrier downgrades Netflix streams to 360p in an effort to conserve bandwidth. “It’s just a dopey claim and has no basis in fact at all,” Hamby said.
“T-Mobile ( NYSE:TMUS) CEO John Legere once again took a swipe at the competition, saying both Verizon ( NYSE: VZ) and AT&T ( NYSE: T) deliver lower-resolution video from Netflix than T-Mobile’s Binge On provides. But the nation’s two largest carriers say he’s wrong.”
