Hard for AT&T to complain about this since they created the entire CLEC strucutre that now bites them in the ass
however, sucks that google is blocking calls and i agree in many ways google shouldn't be bale to sell a service as a telephony service that doesn't give access to all..
I'm guessing googles angle is that those unreachable customers should get internet and then use ip telephony and be done with their local municipal carriers but that igonres the last mile costs google doesn't incure
Meanwhile AT&T is blocking apps like Slingbox on the iPhone from running on the 3G network... who are they to talk about net neutrality? Hypocrites.
Apple & AT&T are both to blame for this.. what good is 3G with an iPhone when its slow as molasses? What good is it with iPhone when a file is larger than 10megs and Apple says "You must use wifi to download this file" so on and so forth
I still say Apple should have gone carrier neutral and should have a completely open app service a-la Android.
