AT&T will not charge customers for using the FaceTime over Cellular feature in iOS 6, but will require users to be on one of its new Mobile Share data plans.
That’s a welcome addition and a serious carrot for those still uncertain about switching to one of these plans. This either means that AT&T is highly confident in their data network or that people really just don’t use FaceTime all that much.
I wonder if call quality will be better on an audio-only FaceTime call.
Update: There has been some hate around the web for this announcement, and I’ve yet to get a straight answer as to why it’s such a bad thing. The shared plans include unlimited texts, tethering, and now FaceTime. They aren’t perfect plans, but it seems like a step in the right direction, even if it’s a small one.
