FCC asks Google to explain how, why it blocks calls
Page (1) of 1 - 10/12/09||
U.S. regulators on Friday asked Google Inc to explain how the Internet giant's Voice service blocks expensive calls to some rural areas, after lawmakers demanded an investigation.
The Federal Communications Commission asked Google to respond by October 28 with information about how Google Voice calls are routed, why it restricts calls to particular telephone numbers and how Google chooses the numbers.
Google must also identify how many users of Voice now exist and whether the company plans to offer Voice on other than an "invitation-only" basis, according to the letter sent by Sharon Gillett, chief of the FCC's wireline competition bureau.
