On Monday, March 2, 2020, Allstream launched a robocall mitigation service in the United States to enhance your calling experience with Allstream voice services. The robocall mitigation service is designed to detect and warn Allstream customers of suspected robocall and spam activity using the caller ID name feature on their telephones. This feature is of no cost to you and it does not impact your Allstream services. However, you may have noticed changes in the way caller ID names are displayed on your phones.

Starting November 2019, carriers will begin the implementation of Universal Call Blocking (UCB). The CRTC has mandated Carriers implement UCB or Call Filtering. The aim of UCB and Call Filtering is to reduce the number of nuisance calls.
