The carrier has written a letter to the Federal Communications Commission
claiming that Google has violated the agency's Net neutrality principles,
which Google has long supported. Google defended its position in a blog
post written by Richard Whitt, Google's main ***lobbyist*** and
telecommunications lawyer in Washington, that basically said AT&T is
comparing apples and oranges.
In a letter to the FCC filed on Friday, AT&T said Google is violating the
fourth principle in the FCC's Internet Policy Statement, which calls for
fair competition among providers of networks, applications, services, and
content, as it blocks telephone calls made using Google Voice service to
certain rural communities.
