High Quality YouTube Playback Over 3G Coming In iOS 5?

Earlier this week reports of FaceTime over 3G in iOS 5 popped up. Currently, FaceTime can only be officially used over WiFi, so 3G would be a major new feature update.

Continuing to expand the use of 3G, it seems that YouTube on iOS 5 will now stream high quality video over 3G. Again, like FaceTime, you can only get high quality video over YouTube if you are on WiFi.

High Quality YouTube video over 3G is available on internal builds of iOS 5, much like FaceTime over 3G

Is this Apple’s way of stickin’ it to the carriers?
