BT has become the first major telecoms company to back Google in its battle against the EU. Google is in a battle with EU regulators over its Android Operating system which is being targeted by anti-trust regulators.

The EU claims that Google stifles competition by requiring smartphone makes to pre install its search, browser, and other apps on Android devices.

The regulators had been investigating the technology giant over the promotion of its own shopping service within its own search engine.

“We can confirm that our legal team has written to the European Commission regarding their investigation,” said a spokesman for BT.

“We told them BT is free to pre-install its own or third party apps on devices alongside pre-loaded Google apps.”

Why BT went public with its support is a little strange and leaves a lot of question.

Critics of the company are claiming that google is preventing innovation and the development of competing platforms, but BT has stated that tight control over the platform has been a positive and not a negative.

“We also said that, as an app provider, we value the ongoing stability and compatibility of operating systems, whether they are ‘open source’ or ‘closed source’,” the spokesman said.
