AT&T announced today that it will enable FaceTime over Cellular free of charge for iOS 6 customers who own an LTE device on any of its connected data plan.
The U.S. telecoms carrier says FaceTime, the video-calling feature of Apple’s iOS platform, will be made available to LTE customers with tiered data plans.
AT&T will also continue to offer FaceTime over Cellular to customers subscribed to its Mobile Share plan, as well as FaceTime over Wi-Fi, which has always been available for all customers. AT&T expects to roll out this functionality to customers over the next eight to ten weeks.
As part of its commitment to serving customers with disabilities, AT&T is also making FaceTime over Cellular available to deaf and hard of hearing customers who qualify for special text and data-only packages.
AT&T holds the most number of iPhone customers in the U.S.
