AT&T has revealed plans to offer a new service that would allow app developers and content providers to pay for the data consumption of their users.
It is not clear who is the targeted audience for such a platform. The company said:
A feature that we’re hoping to have out sometime next year is the equivalent of 800 numbers that would say, if you take this app, this app will come without any network usage.
We do not see even paid services like Hulu or Netflix pay for data usage by their subscribers. Remains to be seen what AT&T has planned with it!
