I wonder what technical methods they can use for this
Would they have some kind of database at every router around the country, with a list of web addresses to exempt? Or would they be querying some central database for every network packet? It sounds expensive, especially if few websites pay for it.
They'll probably adjust their routing so that data going to these content providers is routed differently and bypasses their meters. Participating content providers will probably get an AT&T-assigned IP address where data can be routed to and from, and that IP will be written into their apps.
Heh, force them to host with AT&T, that's almost too evil even for AT&T.

Actually, they would be metered... just not charged.
