Over 620,000 Brazilians registered during the first day of the launch of the new do-not-call register, opting out of receiving marketing calls from telecom operators, according to the National Telecommunications Agency (Anatel). To request the blocking of unwanted calls, consumers must fill out an online form and the suspension of the calls occurs up to 30 days later. At the end of the process, the user receives a proof of the blockade and can, at any time, unblock one or several providers to make telemarketing offers again.
