Why isn’t Cox part of the group of telecom companies working to end robocalls?
It has been in the news the past few days that attorneys general from all 50 states and DC are working to combat robocalls with the new technology available and to offer free blocking features to all...
To be fair, it isn't as though regulators and the FCC haven't gone through predictable and insulting charades, disingenuous head fakes toward doing something about it... the DNC list is a bit of evidence to that end- and we're still advised to register and report to it when illegitimate (mostly overseas) lawbreakers using spoofed numbers target us with phone harassment because we're supposed to just believe that furnishing bad information that has zero relationship with the actual offending party is going to do anything beyond placating us with a sense that something actually happened.
Expect the placebo button to get an update and face lift. Cox's lack of participation with such an "effort" holds little relevance... though they COULD do more if they actually gave a ***. They don't because until something meaningful becomes mainstream they will have no reason to- it's not as though they really have to compete for customers for their core services- and telephone is NOT one of them.
Well, gee-gosh-shuckydarn... but even the mildest of epithets get trapped and sanitized to an inoffensive string of pain-in-the-asterisks
