BendBroadband phone subscribers should take note that calls to China are now blocked.
BendBroadband uses AT&T for all international calling. Because of a large influx of fraud from AT&T’s network to China Telecom, which is China’s largest telephone company, all calls to China are being blocked by China Telecom, including calls from BendBroadband subscribers.
At this time, AT&T does not have an estimated time of resolution.
Reuters news service recently reported that two U.S. senators have asked the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and national security agencies to review whether Chinese state-run telecom operators China Telecom and China Unicom should be allowed to operate in the United States due to security concerns.
Calls from China to BendBroadband subscribers are not affected.
