FCC Tells Phone Companies to Figure Out a Way to Stop the Damn Robocalls by Next Year or Else

The United States Federal Communications Commission is calling upon the top telephone and wireless service providers to create a system to hinder the plague of illegal robocalls that is driving the majority of Americans bonkers.

 

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai wrote a letter Monday to the telecommunications chief executives, demanding they provide a response by November 19 on how they’re going to start fighting the problem next year, according to Reuters. The letter harkens back to Pai’s request in May that such companies create a “call authentication system,” and it calls out some companies for taking no action toward creating such a system.

 

CallerID has turned into a Joke. Totally spoofable. It would be great if they could create an authentication system were nobody can use a phone number except the device which has the number.

Knowing the telecoms, it will cost us an additional $4 month to prevent these types of calls.
