Klein The US House of Representatives recently passed the "Pallone-Thune Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence Act," or "TRACED Act." If written into law, the TRACED Act would implement a number of changes to the TCPA landscape, such as the creation of a new Interagency Working Group and new anti-spoofing requirements. Most notably for our readership, the TRACED Act imposes new TCPA penalties in the form of civil forfeiture, adding to the already significant penalties that exist today for violations of the TCPA. http://www.mondaq.com/article.asp?articleid=873936&email_access=on -- Bill Horne Telecom Digest Moderator ------------------------------ Message-ID: <20191219180914.GA19691@telecom.csail.mit.edu> Date: Thu, 19 Dec 2019 18:09:14 +0000 From: Moderator <telecom.digest.moderatorQRM@gmail.com> Subject: Canada: The CRTC Imposes New Obligation On Telecommunications Service Providers To Combat Nuisance Calls by Sunny Handa, Céline Poitras and Renée Tousignant Canada's telecommunications regulator has announced that telecom- munications service providers (TSPs) providing voice telecommuni- cations services in Canada must implement a new framework to authenticate and verify caller ID information for IP-based voice calls. http://www.mondaq.com/article.asp?article_id=875440&email_access=on -- Bill Horne Telecom Digest Moderator ------------------------------ Message-ID: <0fa537eb-7013-4d70-b777-9766e33982e2@googlegroups.com> Date: 19 Dec 2019 11:01:44 -0800 From: HAncock4 <withheld@invalid.telecom-digest.org> Subject: Ringback code? For many years the telco's supported a ringback code so as to test a telephone's ringer and the line. The code changed over time. In recent years it was 113+4d (the 4 digits of the phone number). One then flashed and hung up, and the phone would ring. But that is no longer working. Would anyone know the current ringback code? Thanks! [public replies, please] P.S. Are there any other 11N codes? (ie. 112, 117, etc.?) ------------------------------ ********************************************* End of telecom Digest Sat, 21 Dec 2019
