Comcast rolls out landline verified Caller ID platform to combat robocalls

Wednesday 10 March 2021 | 12:23 CET | News
Comcast said it rolled out the US's largest landline voice implementation of a STIR/SHAKEN-based verified caller ID system. This will help protect the company's Xfinity Voice, Comcast Business Voice and Business VoiceEdge Select customers from illegal robocall calls and caller ID spoofing. These customers will display a Verified [V] label in the caller ID when a call is authenticated as not spoofed, meaning the company has been able to confirm the call is coming from the telephone number displayed.
