Seen any little chickens lately?

According to 'https://www.fcc.gov/call-authentication':

"In March 2020, the Commission adopted new rules requiring all originating 
and terminating voice service providers to implement caller ID 
authentication using STIR/SHAKEN technological standards in the Internet 
Protocol (IP) portions of their networks by June 30, 2021."

So this is a provider issue, not an end user issue and 'June 30, 2021' 
doesn't sound like 'soon.' If this is legit, why haven't my providers said

So why do you want everybody to send you their call metadata? What's your 
endgame? Generate leads to call to pitch your service? Poach clients?

Sorry if I sound cynical. It's 2020 and I'm fresh out of "F's."
