The company says that it will now allow its 300×250 medium rectangle ads to be implemented above the fold on the mobile web, without resulting in Ad Sense violations. These ads take up a good amount of space on a small screen as it is, but at least until today you wouldn’t have to encounter them unless you were scrolling down the page while reading an article.
This will mean more screen real estate taken up by an ad and less content, so it's going to suck for users.
That’s basically what’s happening here, except it’s more difficult to stop because, as the FCC might say, there’s "no obvious consumer harm" in giving people free stuff. This scheme is called "zero rating," and people like Susan Crawford have been warning us for a while about the risk it poses for the open internet.
The only reason Binge On and Music Freedom sound like such a great pro-consumer deal is because the top four mobile ISPs — Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile — have manufactured a market based completely on artificial scarcity.
