After much build-up, the FCC’s Robocall “Strike Force” — a coalition of telecom and tech companies — presented the results of their new effort to block irritating and hazardous robocallers and keep them from interrupting our lives.
Sadly, although there are billions of robocalls every month, the phone companies’ solution does nothing to stop them. Like much of the FCC, we’re holding the applause until the Strike Force commits to a deadline to make new consumer tools available to block unwanted calls for everyone, for free.
Send a message on this page to Verizon, AT&T and CenturyLink and tell them to make call blocking tools available immediately and to commit to concrete dates for ending unwanted calls.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Consumers Union Advocacy.
Dear AT&T, Verizon and Century Link,
Thank you,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
