A bipartisan group of attorneys general is urging the Federal Communications Commission to speed efforts to combat illegal robocalls by moving up the deadline for small companies to implement caller ID technology.
The 51 attorneys general, in comments to the FCC, said small companies should implement caller ID technology as soon as possible, and no later than June 30, 2022.
Small companies now have until June 2023 to implement the STIR/SHAKEN technology, which is used to ensure calls originate from verified numbers and not spoofed sources.
Large companies were required to implement the technology by June of this year.
