State Slamming Statutes and Rules
Telephone slamming is the unauthorized practice of changing a subscriber's telephone service provider without their consent.
States without specific slamming statutes or administrative rules may still prosecute slamming and cramming activities under their various state fraud statutes.
State laws may use phrases such as “unauthorized charges or changes” or “unauthorized third party billings” to describe slamming and cramming.
Rules are included in this chart as some states have given their respective public utilities commission statutory authority to regulate and prohibit slamming and cramming activities.
