Mitigating Robocall and Robotext Threats

As policymakers continue their efforts to combat illegal robocalling and robotexting, INCOMPAS will continue to advocate for solutions that fill current regulatory gaps (including gaps for wholesale providers and enterprise customers), avoid putting any unnecessary restrictions that impact the ability of voice providers to innovate and compete, and are tailored appropriately for smaller competitors based on their resources.

To mitigate fraudulent robocalling and robotexting activity, the Commission must advance the IP transition to ensure STIR/SHAKEN operates across IP-interconnected networks, address outstanding issues related to call authentication for non-residential use cases, institute robust call/text blocking notification and redress mechanisms, and ensure industry efforts to manage illegal robocalls and robotexts do not intentionally or inadvertently discriminate against competitive providers.
