Federal Communications Commission has sent Google an inquiry asking for clarification on a number of points about Google Voice, which amount to essentially everything about the service. Specifically, the Commission wants to know: how Google Voice calls’re routed, whether certain numbers’re restricted, the technological methods used to restrict these numbers, and how Google informs users about these restrictions. Google responded “the reason they restrict calls to certain local phone carriers' numbers is not only do they charge exorbitant termination rates for calls, but they also partner with adult sex chat lines and "free" conference calling centers to drive high volumes of traffic. Google says that because Voice is a free application, they can’t afford to pay for these rates.”
