U.S Operators Join Global Anti-Spam Efforts
The GSMA today announced that AT&T, Bell Mobility, Sprint, T-Mobile USA, and Verizon Wireless have adopted the GSMA Spam Reporting Service (SRS). Though the U.S. has one of the world's lowest rates of SMS-based spam, the measure will help U.S. operators protect its customers from spam attacks. The GSMA's SRS allows operators to "share attack intelligence in real time" so that proper measures can be taken to prevent or slow down the spread of attacks. Consumers will be able to report spam messages to their operators through a short code service. The data will then be pooled with global data on spam.
