New Steps Unveiled for Preventing Unwanted Robocalls

Robocall

Earlier today, the FCC’s Robocall Strike Force unveiled some new steps that phone providers are taking to help prevent unwanted robocalls. A robocall is defined as a call with an automatic dialing system or with a prerecorded or artificial voice. The strike force, established earlier this year, includes among others Charter, Comcast, and Cox, all of whom are providing their customers with specific guidance and tools on how to block unwanted robocalls. NCTA joins them in supporting the task force as well as the FCC’s robocall portal that provides information about consumer rights and operator responsibilities regarding robocalls.
