The Wall Street Journal reported this morning that AT&T plans the equivalent of an 800 number for wireless app developers and content providers. Under the plan, app developers or content providers, not customers, would pay for the data used and the data would not apply to a customer’s data cap.
The story is here.
The following is attributed to Harold Feld, legal director of Public Knowledge:
“This new plan is unfortunate because it shows how fraudulent the AT&T data cap is, and calls into question the whole rationale of the data caps. Apparently it has nothing to do with network management. It's a tool to get more revenue from developers and customers.
