    FCC Launches Google Voice Probe

    Advertisement



    via ComputerWorld: "The U.S. Federal Communications Commission will launch an inquiry into Google Voice, the Web-based voice service, after complaints that the tech giant is blocking some calls.

    The FCC action comes after AT&T, in a letter to the agency Sept. 25, complained that Google was pushing for net neutrality rules that would prohibit broadband providers from blocking or slowing Internet traffic while at the same time blocking some calls on its service to some phone numbers with high access charges.

    "Numerous press reports indicate that Google is systematically blocking telephone calls from consumers that use Google Voice to call telephone numbers in certain rural communities," wrote Robert Quinn, AT&T's senior vice president for federal regulatory affairs. "By blocking these calls, Google is able to reduce its access expenses. Other providers, including those with which Google Voice competes, are banned from call blocking [by the FCC]."
