48 billion devided by 280 million equals calls to each phone.

Let's see if the "I'm here to help" people build in a loop-hole that allows them to robo call.

"How are we supposed to reach the voters without robo?"
They aren't so smart. Twitter of course.

48 billion / 380 million = 126 call per phone last year. It certainly seems like more than 1 call every other day.

Is it to the benefit of the telecommunication providers, who have promised to reduce it, to reduce their paying customers' calls?

I recall one day I had received 7 back to back robo calls. The following call came from an out of state area code that I didn't recognize. 

Me: "OK what are YOU selling?"

Her: "Ummmm... nothing? I was hoping you could help me sell my home."

Of course I was totally mortified. But this is what these robo calls are doing to fairly sane people. We are becoming pretty pissed off after being poked and prodded on our own communication devices relentlessly.

Thankfully she started laughing and I ended up listing 5 of her investment properties. But those robo calls could have potentially cost me $35,000 in commissions if the seller hadn't of seen the humor in the situation.
