AT&T is pleased to work with AG Stenehjem in protecting North Dakota consumers against these intrusive calls.
The announcement from the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG) and their list of principles aligns with what AT&T is already doing to protect our customers against illegal and unwanted calls. We offer our in-network, call blocking and labeling tool, AT&T Call Protect, at no charge to our customers. And we’ve recently partnered with other carriers to roll out cross-network call authentication.
Since late 2016, AT&T has blocked or labeled nearly 600 million suspected fraud calls and more than 1.4 billion suspected spam calls. In addition, apart from these tools, AT&T’s global fraud team identifies and blocks traffic it believes to be illegal, and has blocked more than five billion such calls on AT&T’s network.
AT&T has made no secret of its desire to more aggressively target illegal and unwanted robocalls on its network. We remain committed to working with stakeholders at all levels of government and throughout the industry as we continue to fight this ongoing battle.
