WASHINGTON, D.C.—Rep. Anna G. Eshoo (D-Calif.), Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Communications and Technology, released the following statement today after AT&T announced it would commit to open service beyond the company's Mobile Share plan. The decision comes after concerns that AT&T violated open Internet rules, specifically when the company blocked customers who are not on the Mobile Share plan from using Apple's FaceTime app over the carrier's mobile network.
"I applaud AT&T's announcement to commit to open service beyond its Mobile Share plan," Rep. Eshoo said. "This is a victory for consumers and for those who know a free and open Internet is vital to sustaining our rapidly expanding mobile technology market."
