AT&T to FCC: Rules must apply to Google too

Telecommunications giant says Google is a powerful company that's trying to fool the government into believing that the rules shouldn't apply to it.

AT&T has taken off the boxing gloves in its fight against the Google Voice service and proposed changes to Net neutrality rules.

In a letter sent to the FCC (PDF) on Wednesday, AT&T went on the attack to portray Google as a powerful company that's trying to fool the FCC into believing that the rules shouldn't apply to it.

In the letter, AT&T is trying to cover all of its bases. This means that, at times, it's hard to follow which arguments it's trying to make--the one about Google Voice or the one about Net neutrality. And it doesn't help that AT&T stoops a little low by referencing a convent of Benedictine nuns in a list of those hurt by having calls to their numbers blocked to and from Google Voice numbers.
