AT&T Chairman Leads Industry-wide Fight Against Robocalling
It’s always a busy and interesting time of year, as we reflect on the first half of the year and enjoy the last days of summer. Now that so many of our children are back in school, family time can be even more precious, meaning those terrible robocalls received during dinner are even more annoying.
That is one of the reasons I’m proud that our CEO, Randall Stephenson, has agreed to lead an industry wide Robocalling Strike Force.

Robocalls are currently the largest source of consumer complaints at the FCC and the FTC, the agencies charged with enforcing the “Do Not Call” list. Robocallers who intentionally ignore the Do Not Call list disrupt dinner, interrupt family time and provide a persistent source of annoyance to consumers everywhere. These robocallers use technology to evade existing tools designed to screen unwanted and illegal calls.
AT&T and others in the industry have been working to address this issue. Our CEO, Randall Stephenson, has agreed to lead an industry-wide Robocalling Strike Force, focused on accelerating the development and deployment of new tools for fighting this troubling problem.
