AT&T Claims New York Times Report on Data Caps is False

new york times att

I was just listening to AT&Ts media relations leader (Didn't catch his name) defend the telecom leader's reputation on the Clark Howard Show, national radio. He was being interviewed by nationally syndicated consumer watchdog reporter Clark Howard.
AT&T was in Howard's crosshairs after he read a report from the New York Times claiming that wireless card holders would be charged for using Youtube,Hulu and any other video sites other than AT&T's video platform. AT&T's media relations spokesperson defended the terms and claimed that the only limitation was on TV signals relayed to a PC or mobile via a device such as Slingbox.
They also discussed the future of 4G networks and network capacity.  It's still too early to tell when AT&T will fully implement 4G, but it's expected to arrive within the next 24 months.
