Google is facing a $25,000 fine after the FCC in the USA claimed the company “deliberately impeded and delayed” an ongoing investigation into whether it breached federal laws in the USA.The charge relates to Google’s street-mapping service after the  FCC initiated an investigation in 2010 into how the search company collected and stored payload data from unencrypted wireless networks.

No fines were initiated against the Company in Australia.

At the time Google said that they were building up a list of Wi-Fi network hotspots to aid geolocation services on mobile devices through ‘assisted-GPS’.
