FCC orders phone companies to help trace illegal robocallers [telecom]

It's now also putting a limit on non-telemarketing robocalls.

By Mariella Moon

The FCC has been adopting more and more measures to combat robocalls, and the latest set of rules it's implementing include limiting even non-telemarketing calls made to residential phones. Non-commercial, commercial and nonprofit organizations can now only make up to three calls per residential number within 30 days and are required to allow recipients to opt out. The FCC didn't have a limit for non-telemar- keting calls before this change. In addition, the commission has introduced new rules for voice service providers, which are now required to respond to traceback requests for illegal call sources from the commission and from law enforcement.

The question, of course, is whether "residential phones" includes cell phones.
