In the face of mounting pressure from Net Neutrality groups and threats of FCC complaints, AT&T recently unblocked use of Apple’s FaceTime for some of its user base. Unfortunately, customers on unlimited data plans are still unable to use the popular chat feature over AT&T’s cellular network. In response, Free Press has launched an initiative to allow customers to speak out against the practice.
The site, which carries a banner boldly declaring “AT&T: Your World. Blocked,” allows users to submit their name, email address, and zip code to the growing list of disgruntled web denizens. At the time of this writing, the site already has over 6,600 comments in the name of Net Neutrality.
