Google, Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile ETFs Investigated by FCC

Looks like the major US carriers are causing a bit of a stir over their use of early termination fees, as according to an article over on phone scoop, the Federal Communications Commission is mounting an investigation into said ETFs.

Word is the US carriers are being investigated by the new FCC Consumer Task Force and letters over the concerns of carrier early termination fees have been sent to Google, AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile.

Julius Genachowski, the chairman of the FCC has said that the latest action if the first by the FCC Consumer Task Force that was launched last week and look forward to the letter relies and any recommendations from staff as to the next steps to take.

So it looks like the FCC is looking into the high ETFs from all carriers which includes Google because of, one would guess, their rather large early termination fee with their Nexus One superphone. Perhaps it is about time these carriers re-evaluated those charges and reduced them somewhat.
