The Federal Communications Commission reports that there are as many as 150 million robocalls placed each day in America.
But, that may soon change. The FCC has voted to allow phone carriers to block the automated calls by default, as long as they inform their customers. Customers will be able to choose to opt out of the blocking or continue to receive robocalls.
As for the cost to consumers, officials say right now the vast majority of the call blocking services are offered for free and the FCC anticipates that because blocking the robocalls could save companies money they would be able to pass those savings onto consumers.
