Verizon Wireless FaceTime

Verizon allows FaceTime use over data connection at no extra charge

Verizon Wireless FaceTimeVerizon Wireless has upped the ante for avid FaceTime users as the telecommunications firm said that using FaceTime over their data plans will not be charged. A big sigh of relief there for Verizon Wireless users.

According to the Wall Street Journal, “All Verizon Wireless customers will be permitted to use the data-intensive application with no additional charges, including those remaining on unlimited data plans.”

This comes as a big blow to AT&T and their subscribers as the company has previously decided, that although there won’t be any extra charges, but the data they will use will be subdivided into shared plans.

FaceTime used to be an app that only worked in WiFi connections. But on iOS 6, which runs the new iPhone 5, FaceTime can now be used in your network’s data connection.

Verizon Wireless subscribers fist pumped when they heard the news that they won’t be charged for extra when they use FaceTime.

Another telecom company has also come upfront to allow their subscribers to use FaceTime without paying an extra amount.

Sprint is also enabling their subscribers data usage for their FaceTime connection.

Verizon used to toy with the idea of shared data plans but has since pulled out from their shared data fantasies.
