Every day businesses worldwide compete to become more efficient, effective and profitable through ever-evolving technological innovation and creativity.  Unfortunately, at the same time, malicious actors are working tirelessly to leverage any and all vulnerabilities within any system they can find, or insiders they can manipulate.


USTelecom this month released its “2018 Industry Metrics and Trends,” an analysis of the most recent public and private data, and offering a fresh look at the state of broadband in the United States.


It’s no surprise that the rise of the internet in the mid-1990’s has fundamentally changed the way Americans live, work and communicate. Adapting and connecting to this new, digital reality has meant large-scale investment (to the tune of $1.6 trillion dollars) by America’s broadband providers, who work hard each day to ensure that everyone has access to fast and reliable internet service. According to a new report out by the U.S.


It is said that ‘the road to hell is paved with good intentions.’ Nowhere can we find a more perfect modern  example for this sentiment than in the cacophony of disparate calls by state and local regulators across the country each seeking to impose their own brand of ‘net neutrality’ regulations on consumers’ internet experience.


USTelecom Vice President of Law & Policy Kevin Rupy recently participated on an illegal robocalling panel co-hosted by the FCC and the FTC about challenges facing consumers and industry. Rupy spoke specifically about the development of authenticated caller-ID, traceback efforts to identify the source of illegal robocalls, ongoing cooperation with federal agencies to help mitigate robocalls, and resources to help consumers block illegal calls.
