When will Xfinity/Comcast stop completing calls from invalid numbers?

"Latest FCC Action

On Nov. 16, 2017, the FCC adopted new rules to allow voice service providers to proactively block certain types of robocalls that are likely to be fraudulent because they come from certain types of phone numbers, including those that do not or cannot make outgoing calls.

 

When will Comcast/Xfinity stop completing calls that come from unassigned and/or invalid numbers? We just got one today from an invalid number. Because it is not valid, it cannot be blocked in the Selective Call Rejection area of the Comcast Business Website.

Re: When will Xfinity/Comcast stop completing calls from invalid numbers?

Hello HBM2. There a couple measures you can take, while our company works through isolating calls that are unmarked/invalid callers calling to your number. First, we encourage you register your home phone number with the national do not call registry via donotcall.gov. Secondly, you can sign up for a free 3rd party robo-call blocking service that is compatible with our home phone service. For instructions on how to set this up, if you choose, please visit: https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/nomorobo
