AT&T to Sell Plan to Charge App Makers for Data Traffic

Do you think developers would pay for your data traffic for using their apps?

AT&T to Sell Plan to Charge App Makers for Data Traffic

For a long time companies have been able to have toll-free phone numbers where they pay for the costs of the phone call so customers will feel more comfortable calling without having to worry about charges. AT&T is now talking about a plan that could see it allowing app developers do the same thing for data charges racked up using their apps.

AT&T claims that there is interest from companies to use the feature to capture the interest of consumers. This seems like a very strange thing to me, data is much more expensive today than a phone call. I can certainly see developers of the popular app paying out huge sums of money for data traffic.

This plan comes a time when AT&T is trying to force people away from unlimited data plans to tiered plans were it can make more money. I could see this being popular for subscription applications for news content. However, I don't see any developer of apps that are in use frequently wanting to pay for the data traffic generated.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
