FCC May Review Complaints About AT&T's FaceTime Policy

Federal Communications Chairman Julius Genachowski today said that the agency will look at complaints that have been made in the face of AT&T's FaceTime policy. AT&T is only allowing subscribers of its Mobile Share plans to conduct FaceTime video chats over cellular networks. Some public advocacy groups have already charged AT&T with violating net neutrality rules, but AT&T defended its policy. Genachowski said that if efforts to resolve the issue don't "lead to a resolution and a complaint is filed, we will exercise our responsibilities and we will act." Sprint and Verizon Wireless do not require their customers to subscribe to any special plan in order to access and use FaceTime over cellular. Genachowski stopped short of saying the FCC would take specific action, but made it clear it is ready to do so should the need arise.
