Yes, these details are provided in the technical specifications for using the product, but generally any data type used in a non-secure method can be sponsored, and with additional set-up, many types of secure data sessions can be sponsored, such as a browse session within a shopping cart in a web page.
There is a mechanism to allow companies to sponsor data to third party sites. In some cases, it may require the company or developer to contact the application owner.
Any creation, management or expiration of an offer is the responsibility of the offer publisher. AT&T provides some feature and management capabilities, but using them is solely at the discretion of the publisher.
A publisher of a sponsored offer determines the criteria for that offer at their discretion. The specifics on rate plan and device type that is required for the product to operate on AT&T's network is the minimum qualification required.
All sponsored data usage will show up in summary form on the monthly bill. Specific content is not identified.
To get more information about AT&T Sponsored Data, please contact your AT&T sales rep or email us at email@example.com.
Sponsored data providers will have access to billing and analytics information through the AT&T Developer portal at developer.att.com.
For example, a customer may access an application for healthcare from their insurer. Within the application, there is an educational video. The customer sees the Sponsored Data name, identifying that the video is sponsored. When the customer clicks the icon to play the video, the data usage incurred while watching the video is not applied to the customer’s monthly data allowance.
Sponsored Data is an AT&T product that enables companies to sponsor the data usage for specific content on behalf of eligible AT&T wireless customers. With AT&T Sponsored Data eligible customers can browse, stream and enjoy applications from our data sponsors without impacting their monthly data allowance.
