In late 2012, AT&T announced that it would cripple the FaceTime video calling app on its customers’ iPhones unless they subscribed to a more expensive text-and-voice plan. This action was a clear violation of Net Neutrality.
Thanks to enormous public pressure — including Free Press' threat to file a complaint at the Federal Communications Commission — AT&T is starting to relent. In early 2013, it announced it would allow more customers to use FaceTime over its network. But more isn’t good enough.
AT&T is still blocking FaceTime for all customers with unlimited data plans. That’s a lot of people.
Let’s be clear: Data is data. AT&T has no right to decide how its customers use it.
