Bipartisan Group Calls for FCC Probe into Google Voice Restricted Calls


Recently, AT&T openly criticized Google for blocking calls on its Voice product. Long-distance carriers such as AT&T are prohibited by law from restricting calls to higher-cost areas. Google responded by saying that is an internet-based application and therefore exempt from the law.

Now, a group of Democrats and Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives are asking FCC to investigate Google Voice’s call restrictions. The is already probing the rejection of a Google Voice application for Apple’s iPhone, which is only available through AT&T. Thus far, has informed the FCC that it has not officially rejected the Google Voice app, while Google has said that the app was indeed rejected by the powers that be in Cupertino. AT&T was not cited at fault by either party.

This week, AT&T announced that it would allow VOIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) applications to work over its data network.
