What is Universal Call Blocking (UCB)?

100% helpful (1/1)

Received an unwanted nuisance call lately? Rogers and most Canadian telephone service providers will implement Universal Call Blocking (UCB) as part of a new CRTC mandate to reduce them.


Malformed numbers can appear in many different forms, but caller IDs 000-000-0000 or 111-111-1111 are common examples. Applied at the network level for all Rogers’ customers, UCB will block any incoming call with a caller ID that does not comply with North American or international numbering plans. UCB will not block incoming calls with compliant caller IDs.
