Re: I dont get it
Skype uses a paltry 6 kB of data throughput, so the restriction can't be about network performance, especially since AT&T touts video streaming in their own ads about their network.
If they are worried about financial performance, then what you're saying is that AT&T should be able to restrict anything that they can't make additional money in providing the service. That means good-bye to Google Maps, because they have their own service. Good-bye to email, because they too have their own email. Whatever AT&T wants to make money on above and beyond the $30 per month, they should be able to cut off, charge extra for and eliminate any consumer choice.
How 1950's. Here's your email, here's your mapping, and here's your big black bakeline phone that you can only get from the phone company.
