As FCC Steps In, Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, May Get Boost To Stop Robocalls


April 7, 2019

The Federal Communications Commission is pushing the telecom industry to step up attacks on robocallers, which could provide another tool for consumers.

The FCC knows better than anyone how bad the robocall crisis is (FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has called it a "scourge") simply because of the flood of complaints the agency gets.

Unwanted calls are far and away the biggest consumer complaint to the FCC with over 200,000 complaints each year—around 60 percent of all the complaints we receive.
