Reports emerged this week that a consumer filed a complaint with the FCC alleging that AT&T violated the Open Internet rules by limiting the Apple FaceTime video chat service to only certain mobile broadband plans. It would be the first complaint of its kind. The complainant is believed to be an architect in San Francisco who is a long-time unlimited AT&T data subscriber but cannot use FaceTime unless he is on WiFi. In September, several public interest groups announced they would file a formal complaint with the FCC for the same reasons, but have not yet done so. See Sepember 24 edition of This Week in Telecom. AT&T previously defended the practice in a blog post, but apparently will now have to do so at the FCC. The public interest groups state that they still plan to file a formal complaint.
