Win! New BT service to block nuisance calls

BT is to launch a free service that will block nuisance calls before they get to you, in another win for our campaign.

BT has announced a new service aimed at diverting millions of nuisance calls, which is set to launch later this year. BT has said that it will harness huge computer power to analyse and monitor calls to the company’s 10 million domestic customers and identify any patterns of callers.

Any rogue numbers will then be diverted to a junk voice box, which BT estimates will affect up to 25m unwanted calls a week.
