US to force Apple over Google Voice on iPhone?

Telecoms commission intervenes on suspicion of collusion

Google Voice

It was inevitable that someone of a regulatory persuasion would stick their nose into the brewing row over Google Voice being denied access to the iPhone App Store and that appears to be the US FCC.

Competitive market

An official explanation from the telecoms regulator explained that it "has a mission to foster a competitive wireless marketplace, protect and empower consumers, and promote innovation and investment."

However, if the FCC does force Apple's hand in the US and force it to allow Google Voice and other VoIP apps, it's uncertain what the implications will be for other territories.
