The FCC recently decided to overhaul a huge fund to provide broadband access instead of more phone line access. According to PhoneRecordFinder.com, that may mean more telemarketing calls for established home, work and cell numbers. Now more than ever, phone owners will want to log on to http://www.PhoneRecordFinder.com for free information about unknown callers.

"This change may mean more telemarketing calls for existing lines," per PhoneRecordFinder.com

In previous years, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has funded access to landline telephone services, especially in rural areas, bringing phone access to new areas and people. This, according to PhoneRecordFinder.com, meant more phone numbers for telemarketers to add to their call lists.

Now, the FCC decided to overhaul the $8.7 billion Universal Service Fund (USF) to focus on supporting broadband access. According to Julius Genachowski, the Chairman of the FCC, "At the end of this transition, we would no longer subsidize telephone networks; instead we would support broadband," adding that voice service would continue to be supported through VoIP over fixed or mobile broadband connections eventually supported by the fund.

While PhoneRecordFinder.com views this significant change as positive and economical, it may mean more telemarketing calls for existing lines.

One thing more irritating than telemarketing calls during work or dinner or family time, is more telemarketing calls during that valuable time. Enter the phone number of those annoying calls into the search bar at http://www.PhoneRecordFinder.com, to get information.
