What does AT&T's 'Mark the Spot' app say about service quality?

By Joe Wilcox, Betanews

Do you have AT&T as wireless carrier? Are you happy with the network service quality? I encourage Betanews readers to respond in comments to these questions, which are suddenly surreal now that AT&T has released the “Mark the Spot” app for iPhone. There’s something comical about an app that tells AT&T about its connection problems. The app also is tacit admission that AT&T has voice service problems. Surely for some greedy lawyer, there’s a lawsuit for that.

Yesterday, the Federal Communications Commission launched yet another inquiry into the Google Voice service, this time at the behest of a bi-partisan group of congresspersons who questioned Google’s ability to block calls to rural telephone exchanges.

“We understand Google has asserted Google Voice is not a ‘traditional’ telephone service — despite its use of 10-digit telephone numbers and its ability to connect calls between telephones through a local exchange carrier,” members of the House of Representatives wrote to the FCC on Wednesday. “Instead, Google maintains it ought to be allowed to block calls to rural telephone exchanges — a position we find ill conceived and unfair to our rural constituents.”
