Spectrum Voice Customers Can Block Unwanted Telemarketing With Nomorobo
Stamford, Conn. – Charter Communications’ Spectrum Voice customers now have the ability to stop unsolicited telemarketing and robocalls with Nomorobo, a proven third-party call-blocking application.
Nomorobo automatically blocks unwanted phone calls from telemarketers and robocallers using a list of known unwanted phone numbers including those on the “Do Not Call” Registry. The call rings both on the home line and the Nomorobo platform simultaneously. If Nomorobo recognizes the call is from an unwanted number, it will be blocked.
“Customers now have even more control over the calls that come into their homes,” said Rich DiGeronimo, Charter’s Executive Vice President, Products and Strategy. “Nomorobo is one of the many ways we continue to enhance customers’ home phone experience with unmatched reliability and service in addition to a wide range of popular advanced phone features available at no extra cost.”
Charter partnered with Nomorobo to bring the call-blocking technology to customers in its efforts to reduce the growing concern over robocalls. The company is part of the Federal Communications Commission’s Robocall Strike Force, an industry-led group focused on accelerating the development and adoption of new tools and solutions to prevent robocalls.
To activate the Nomorobo feature, Spectrum Voice customers should go to www.nomorobo.com and follow the instructions to sign up.
