Estimated reading time: 3 Minutes
Tired of receiving telemarketing calls? Know that this may be near the end! An action by the National Telecommunications Agency (Anatel) will allow you to easily identify these inconvenient calls. Now understand how Anatel’s strategy works!
Anatel has implemented the mandatory prefix 0303 for all telemarketing calls. The measure came into effect on March 10 this year.
Previously, most calls of this type had the prefix 011, as they were made from São Paulo. It ended up hurting those who were waiting for a call with that area code or those who were from the provider’s country and needed to call someone and were not answered.
However, with the aim of putting an end to this uncomfortable situation, Anatel has set the mandatory prefix 0303 for all telemarketing calls made by mobile phones. On June 8, the rule began specifying that calls made from landlines were also required to include the prefix.
