Spam facilitator gets sued by Attorneys General [telecom]

A company that allegedly facilitated billions of spam calls is being sued by nearly every attorney general in the country for allegedly violating consumer protection and telemarketing laws, according to a complaint filed Tuesday.

Avid Telecom, a Voice over Internet Protocol provider, facilitated more than 7.5 billion calls to numbers on the National Do Not Call Registry, according to a complaint filed by AGs from 48 states plus the District of Columbia. The complaint alleged Avid facilitated more than 24.5 billion calls between December 2018 and January 2023, and more than 90% of those calls lasted less than 15 seconds, indicating they were likely robocalls.
