Brazilian consumers will be able to block telemarketing calls

Brazil's National Agency of Telecommunications (Anatel) has given a 30-day deadline to the main telecom operators to implement a single national list of consumers who do not want to receive telemarketing calls with the aim of offering telephony, pay-TV and internet services. It applies to Algar, Claro/Net, Nextel, Oi, Sercomtel, Sky, TIM and Vivo, which have the same deadline to create and promote a channel through which consumers can opt out from receiving telephone calls offering packages or services.
