Robocall saturation is everywhere these days. No matter how good the protections on your phone are, chances are you receive at least one, if not many more robocalls a day. This is called robocall saturation and it is growing at an alarming rate.
Don’t you hate those robocalls over and over again? They just drive you crazy. So check this out the AT&T (T) CEO Randall L. Stephenson is having a live interview and he gets a robocall. Robocall saturation is a growing problem in the telecommunications field and no one seems to have the answer of it.
Robocall Saturation Proven By AT&T CEO During Live Interview
The war on robocalls is getting worse by the day.
AT&T (T) CEO Randall L. Stephenson was rudely interrupted that afternoon by a robocall while being on stage at a conference held at the Economic Club of Washington, DC.
“I’m getting a robocall,” he said. “It’s a robocall.”
The ironic part was that the topic was about robocalls. That very day, AT&T mentioned that it in conjunction with Comcast, the leading giants in the U.S., have exchanged “dozens” of calls with the advancement in some new technology designed to be robocall-proof if possible at all, the companies are calling an “industry first.”
The new system in the works they call it SHAKEN/STIR; it is tested in different parts of the United States, under strong recommendations from the FCC. Unwanted robocalls are the most common complaint the agency receives, and it has made it a priority ending those nasty robocalls. For more information on how to report robocalls, click here.
The technology works by the caller’s network “signing” or authenticating an outgoing call, will add a digital signature like a quality-control mark. On the other side, the Cell networks that receive the call can verify this signature.
Robocalls are like a plague. Some people get 8 to 15 per day. This a joke. Now the CEO gets one while on stage, how funny is that. Do you think he was on the do not call list?
Hopefully, this new SHAKEN/STIR system will help and make it much more stringent.
The new Google XL3 has a feature called call screening that allows you to hit a button called call screen and it will give a message that this a google assistant, please state the purpose of your call. Once you realize it is spam, hit block and report.
