FTC Increases Fees
Please be aware that the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has approved a rate increase for telemarketers accessing phone numbers on the National Do Not Call Registry. Effective October 1, 2019, fees will be increased from $63 per area code or $17,406 for all US area codes to $65 per area code or $17,765 for all US area codes. The increased fees are approved for the fiscal year of 2020 (from October 1, 2019 to September 30, 2020). The first five (5) area codes subscribed to will remain free. Subscriptions expiring before October 1, 2019, will be charged at the previous rate of $17,406 for a twelve-month period to all US area codes.

Remaining TCPA Compliant
The cost of non-compliance extends far beyond the risk of TCPA or DNC fines – including the brand damage associated with violations and the potential loss of customers once the news gets out. Protect your organization today.
