Sex Lines & The Love Traingle Between Google, FCC and AT&T!

That AT&T, Google-Voice story is back with a bang. If you guys remember few days back AT&T had written to FCC & cried out that Google-Voice breaks telecom laws by blocking calls in some rural areas. Now, FCC has questioned (letter copy attached below) Google asking the reason for the same.
Google has responded to this in their blog and its reason for call blocking to some local phone carrier(in rural areas) 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. This practice has been called “access stimulation” or “traffic pumping”… Google Voice is a free application and we want to keep it that way for all our users — which we could not afford to do if we paid these ludicrously high charges.”
Google also says that AT&T is a hypocrite – AT&T (not free like GV) itself use to block the same rural calls for similar reasons until the FCC stepped in 2007.

Who will get FCC’s love? AT&T or Googl? Tough one for FCC
