Iran Communications Regulatory Authority said on Friday it has blocked over 217,000 phone numbers of advertisement senders from November 2017 to Jan. 10, 2020, for combating annoying text messages.
CRA's website shows that the fight against ad senders is still underway and 217,368 SIM cards have so far been blocked for bombarding people with unsolicited text messages.
Authorities at the oversight body believe that the battle against such ad senders is far from over, as new SIM cards and companies join the bandwagon of continuing publicity campaigns, IRNA reported.
Peyman Qaredaghi, a deputy head at CRA, said the cost of sending mass advertisements through text messaging is still very low compared to other means of commercial promotion.
