AT&T today announced that it is extending the availability of FaceTime Over Cellular to more of its customers. AT&T said all customers with tiered data plans will be able to use the feature as long as they have a compatible device (iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPad, iPad Mini). At the moment, this new policy only excludes customers who have grandfathered unlimited data plans. They will not be able to use FaceTime Over Cellular, though all AT&T customers with FaceTime-capable devices can continue to access the feature over Wi-Fi. AT&T said this change in policy was made after extensive network testing. The feature will be enabled automatically over the coming weeks. Customers don't need to take any action.

Common sense

doesn't apply anymore. Why not disable the feature when the unlimited users hit their throttle point? Data is almost useless when you get throttled so you can't do anything anyways. They get throttled at 3GB on 3G/fake 4G and 5GB on LTE.
Reading your post make new think about
how glad I am that I have Unlimited LTE on Verizon!!! Screw this throttling BS!!!
The sad thing about is, those of us who are grandfathered in, still come out better, when you compare the current LTE data plans for 5gigs.
You do know that HSPA+ is a 4G technology. Yes we all know that LTE is better. And AT&T is starting to get more places with LTE.

Does this mean that anyone NOT on the unlimited data plan will be able to use FaceTime over Cellular network?

I have the data plan for iPhone and tethering.
