Another Edition in My Ongoing Series of Articles Wherein I Attempt to Translate the True Meaning of Comments Related to AT&T’s Blocking of FaceTime Over 3G

The FCC has yet to comment on AT&T’s decision to limit FaceTime over cellular connections, but in remarks made today at Vox Media’s offices in Washington, DC, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski suggested that the agency would review complaints about the service. Genachowski said that he couldn’t comment specifically on AT&T at this time, but that if a good-faith effort to resolve the issue “doesn’t lead to a resolution and a complaint is filed, we will exercise our responsibilities and we will act.”

Translation: “In keeping with our usual level of effectiveness and AT&T’s expected level of customer service, we do not intend to force them to do a damn thing.”
