AT&T loosens FaceTime restrictions, but only for LTE users on new plans

http://j.mp/SGcMOt  (ars technica)

   "AT&T has backed off on its decision to limit Apple's video chat
    service, FaceTime, to its shared data plans. In a post to the
    company's public policy blog, AT&T's Senior Executive Vice President
    Jim Cicconi wrote that AT&T will now support FaceTime over its cell
    network "with an LTE device" for all of its tiered data plans within
    the next 8-10 weeks. Still, those who are still using a grandfathered
    unlimited plan-which are no longer offered to new users-will still be
    left out of the FaceTime game, as will those customers who are still
    using devices that can only connect to AT&T's 3G network."

Still a blatant net neutrality violation.
