FCC proposes $10 Million fine for spoofed robocalls

I can't imagine many telcos are making a lot of money from voice anymore.

They should be fining the telcos, they're making a lot of money on 
these calls. 

And if you believe otherwise (e.g., that it's like email spam) you've 
been duped by telco PR. 

Unlike spam when was the last time a telco failed to bill you for a 
billable phone call? Never. 

They know exactly who is using their system. And they get paid for 
it. And these junk callers are making millions of calls per hour when 
they're active. 

The entire telco infrastructure has been described as a billing system 
with some added voice features. 

Try devising a box which makes millions of voice calls per hour and 
see how long it takes before you're stopped dead until you agree to 
pay the telcos for those calls, or get arrested.
