On February 12, 2020, NTCA filed an Ex Parte letter responding to a recent USTelecom, NCTA, and CTIA presentation in which the parties discussed the need for a broad safe harbor that protects voice service providers from undue liability for good-faith efforts to combat abusive robocalls. NTCA emphasized that while it supports such a safe harbor, the Commission should also declare that voice providers can under no circumstances block or label as spam, or suspected spam, or otherwise any call based solely upon the lack of SHAKEN/STIR caller-ID authentication.
