Aren't data limits the entire reason for their lame duck excuse?
Why do they need to restrict applications if they are restricting the amount of data?
They caved because I am sure the FCC contacted them at some point and they were afraid if they continued the fines will be greater once the FCC does come down on them for this. Which I hope will still be the case even though the stopped.
The below pretty much says it all
"AT&T simply cant justify blocking an app that competes with its voice and texting services unless customers purchase a more expensive monthly plan that includes an unlimited amount of those very same services."
In some ways HSPA+ is more spectral efficient than LTE and 3G CDMA Heck I can even FT over 3G CMDA (it kinda sucks but it works).

There probably is no connection, but I'm a bit suspicious of the recent lawsuit that Apple just lost with regards to FaceTime.
If I am not mistaken that company is suing hundreds of companies claiming they have all kinds of patents dealing with SSL.
