Freiden: AT&T will allow Skype on WiFi not 3G
Very interesting comment by Rob Freiden on wireless net neutrality-not. AT&T has decided that it will allow Skype calling if you use your iPhone for WiFi but not on its own network - so hobbling users where it has network congestion but not where they use an open network. He comments on the amount of powe this gives the wireless operators - will Julius Genachowski be happy with their exercising this level of fine-grained control, or is the WiFi concession enough to assuage the regulator?
