For users who watch a lot of streaming video on their mobile devices over a data connection, hitting a data cap can be a pretty frustrating experience. It either means paying an overage for using more data, or it means not having any data to use at all.
AT&T is out to remedy that a little though, by introducing a feature called “Stream Saver” that will be rolled out in 2017. AT&T’s Stream Saver will throttle streaming video quality to help save on data usage. Stream Saver isn’t limited to any specific streaming partners, and it can be easily turned on or off at any time.
