New technology aims to stop robocalls

Created: 01/08/2014 9:45 AM WHEC.com

A new technology may hang up on robocalls once and for all.  
 
"Nomorobo" launched a few months ago after winning the Federal Trade Commission's robocall challenge. The developer says it's blocking nearly 50,000 illegal calls a week.  
 
Nomorobo is a cloud-based technology and currently available only for people who have "voice over internet phone" services.  
 
Time Warner Cable and Comcast both now offer Nomorobo for their internet-based phone services.
