“By making it clear that such call blocking is allowed, the FCC will give voice service providers the legal certainty they need to block unwanted calls from the outset so that consumers never have to get them,” Pai said.

YouMail, a company that blocks robocalls and tracks them, estimated there were 4.9 billion unwanted U.S. calls last month after nearly 48 billion in 2018, which was up nearly 60% from 2017.

Verizon Communications Inc praised the FCC for “taking aggressive action and exploring new tools to protect consumers.”

In May 2018, Pai called on companies to adopt an industry-developed “call authentication system” aimed at ending the use of illegitimate spoofed numbers from the telephone system.

In November, Pai wrote to the chief executive officers of major providers demanding they launch the system no later than 2019 to combat robocalls.
