Regulatory attention is extremely effective at changing carrier business plans – the latest example of this case involves AT&T and its dislike for VoIP applications.

CNet News reports the following:

AT&T on Tuesday said it has made the necessary changes to enable voice over IP iPhone apps to run on its wireless network.

Before Tuesday, VoIP apps would only work over a Wi-Fi network. In other words, if you wanted to use Skype to call a friend, you had to be connected to a regular Internet wireless network. Once you were out of range of that network, the call would end.

As of now, not much further information is available…
