Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai on Wednesday again called for phone companies to implement robust caller ID authentication systems to combat illegal robocalls and spoofing.
"Uniform adoption will help improve authentication throughout the network and make sure no consumer gets left behind," Pai said in a press release (PDF). "This goal should be achievable for every major wireless provider, interconnected VoIP operator, and telephone company -- and I expect those lagging behind to make every effort to catch up."
