Anti-Regulatory Practices (BY PASS)

Practices such as BY PASSING networks or Alteration of the ANI of origin of the call traffic entering a mobile network, affect both mobile operators as well as general public interest. In first place, carrying out those practices prevents mobile operators from charging the corresponding charges for termination of calls under proper regulatory conditions. General interest is affected because those practices lead to fiscal damages, and affect the safety of the entire society, since they frequently involve altering the ANI which prevents identification of the origin of the calls when investigating a crime or a criminal event.
