This is just a terrible idea

Basically AT&T wants developers to pay for data usages so that customers will buy their apps.

And, to push this AT&T is pointing to the fact that data usage is too much for them to handle, which is why they don't offer unlimited usage plans. Yet, they sit on soooo much spectrum.

How about using your spectrum to expand and support your network and stop overselling it. They are attempting to use the same model gyms do when they oversell membership when clearly it isn't working. Don't shift the burden onto developers, invest in your own networks and provide the service you promised your customers.
