The FCC has fined the Madison River Communications phone company for blocking VoIP (Voice over IP) calls over its network.
The action is seen as a warning to other telcos not to prevent the growth of VoIP over their networks. Many of these companies see VoIP as a threat to their landline revenues as calls made over the internet can be made
The North Carolina firm will need to pay a $15,000 fine to the FCC.
