Pols Want FCC to Investigate Google Voice's Call Blocking
Oct 8, 2009, 11:39 AM by Eric M. Zeman
A number of lawmakers in the U.S. House of Representatives are petitioning the Federal Communication Commission to investigate Google Voice's practice of blocking calls to certain rural areas. Google Voice blocks calls to some 1-900 type services and other rural regions to cut down on expenses. It is illegal for telecom providers to block calls. The lawmakers involved call Google's practice "ill conceived and unfair to our rural constituents." Technically Google Voice is a call-forwarding service, but telecom companies believe it should have to abide by the same set of rules that they have to follow.
