AT&T (T) VP Bob Quinn responds to accusations his company is violating net neutrality rules by limiting Apple's FaceTime to Wi-Fi and shared data plans. AT&T is innocent, Quinn argues, since neutrality rules only apply to downloaded rather than pre-installed apps. Few sympathize. "It's a dangerous, slippery slope to limit smartphone features ... just because a customer doesn't sign up for the most expensive data plan," says Steve Kovach. That might especially be true when rivals are racing to compete on price.

    "neutrality rules only apply to downloaded rather than pre-installed apps"

     

    Since when do the neutrality specifications separate the world into these two parts?
