Apple Limits Wireless Speeds On Some U.S. Carriers?

I could see carriers pulling crap like this but why would Apple do it?

Joseph Brown, operator of the Web site iTweakiOS, claims to have discovered code on iPhones and iPads operating on Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint that effectively caps the data speeds that can be achieved on the carriers' networks. Brown took snapshots of the code, which he said specifically limits the iPhone 5 on AT&T to considerably slower wireless data speeds than the device is capable of reaching.
