After rumors heated up about AT&T and Verizon possible charging extra for FaceTime, Al Franken told The Verge in an interview that he believes the carriers have no right to charge users extra for FaceTime.

The Senator did say that carriers do have the right for "network management" such as charging users extra for using excessive data or throttling users for using too much.

Sprint has stated that it will not charge extra for FaceTime over cellular.
