His company is investigating how they can let app developers to payfor users data usage, reported by WSJ. Not the end but developers would therefore be held responsible for the explosive growth of data usage limit. The reasoning is that users can not do nothing if an app uses a lot of data.  



Donovan hope to roll out the next service for  AT&T within the next year…


“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”

The AT&T chief made ​​his remarks at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. John Donovan, senior executive vice president for technology and network operations for AT & T, told the Wall Street Journal that the system they want to develop comparable with 0800-numbers. If you put a number to call to the provider of the service fee. Companies that offer services that much data is involved, must thereby pay more. The system will be introduced from next year in the U.S.. The customer gets through this new system no longer foot the bill, which the poor image of the operators that can be jacked up again.
