Helio flip-flops, gives users free access to YouTube

Darren Murph

For a fledgling MVNO, charging users to access YouTube when many of the more mainstream carriers weren't demanding an extra cent wasn't a bright move. Thankfully, the higher-ups at Helio finally caught on to this fact, and have now retracted the fees required to access the video-sharing site on its network. The briefly constructed (and questionably titled) Video Virus application is now free for all, and users that somehow took the unseductive bait will be reimbursed for their trouble. Phew, here we were thinking that we'd be forced to circumvent the system with a complex series of proxies from here on out.
