“There are far too many phone companies that count illegal robocallers among their clients, and that’s bad business. It is illegal to allow these junk calls to flood consumers’ phones, and there are consequences for phone companies that do not take immediate action to stop participating in these schemes.”
– FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel

The FCC Enforcement Bureau issued warnings to voice service providers that have apparently transmitted illegal robocalls on their networks. Recipients have 48 hours to stop facilitating this traffic or face all their traffic being blocked by other providers. The FCC has carefully constructed the tools necessary to take swift and impactful action against bad actors – this means not only possible fines when violations occur, but also business consequences for those removed from the Robocall Mitigation Database. To date, all recipients have quickly responded and committed to take actions to stop the flow of robocalls on their networks. That said, the FCC and its partners remain vigilant in monitoring these – and all – providers’ efforts to ensure unyielding compliance with consumer protection requirements going forward.
