Sort of. But the FCC mandates that some spectrum that was bought in some of their auctions cannot be used to discriminate about data traffic. The 700 MHz block comes to mind as Verizon recently got in trouble for charging for tethering on their 4G (700 MHz) network. They had to backtrack and allow their customers to freely use their phones as a wifi access point. So, depending on what spectrum the carrier is using, there are limitations to the limitations they can impose.
