As the interim moderator while Bill heals, I'd like to wish all of the readers a happy and healthy (!), new year 2022! The Digest is one of cyberspace's longest-running lists, going back over four decades. And it was on Usenet since before that peaked, and is still available there as comp.dcom.telecom. It has always featured user contributions, and there are a lot of possible topics to address that fit the overall "telecom", including Internet infrastructure, VoIP, mobile, etc., topic area. So feel free to chime in and start or add on to a topic, mailing to telecomdigestsubmissions@remove-this.telecom-digest.org.

By Lori Grunin T-Mobile has reportedly suffered another data breach, a few months after a huge breach in August The new breach seems to have affected a smaller group of customers, who received notifications of "unauthorized activity" that consisted of hackers checking out customer proprietary network information, pulling off a physical SIM swap, or both,says a Tuesday post by blog The T-Mo Report. https://www.cnet.com/tech/mobile/t-mobile-reportedly-suffers-another-smaller-data-breach/ -- I don't want to say that I'm old and worn out, but I'm never anywhere near the curb on trash day

Defendant is a trading firm that provides training to consumers who want to become Forex traders. Plaintiff is a New Jersey resident who had a relationship with Defendant that ended four years ago. Plaintiff filed this class action lawsuit, asserting that Defendant used telemarketing to solicit potential consumers for its services, including through the use of pre-recorded voice messages without first obtaining the consumer's prior express consent. Plaintiff alleges that he received an unsolicited phone call on his cell phone that he did not answer which resulted in Defendant leaving a pre-recorded voice message, allegedly in violation of the TCPA. https://www.mondaq.com/unitedstates/advertising-marketing-branding/1145484/tcpa-ruling-personal-liability-of-defendant39s-director?email_access=on

As reported by Bloomberg, the officials say that C-band 5G threatens to interfere with altimeters and other equipment on planes and helicopters that track aircraft altitude. If this happens, it could prohibit planes from landing in poor visibility, leading to delays, diversions and even the cancellations of flights." https://www.techradar.com/news/us-airlines-are-still-super-worried-about-5g
