Sprint Signs Consent Degree, and To Stop Calling Consumers On Do Not Call Lists

Sprint has agreed to pay $7.5 million to the U.S. Treasury for violating the FCC's Do Not Call rules and for continuing to call and/or send texts to consumers who had specifically told the company they did not want any communication with the company. Sprint said it has investigated internal policies; under the decree, it must put a compliance program into place to ensure that it does not violate Do Not Call regs again. The FCC notes that the settlement is the largest so far ever paid by a company under such circumstances.

A link to the Consent Decree is here. Coverage here from TechTimes, here from PBS.org.
