Talk Talk do something nice
The telecoms giant cut the fee on its Last Caller Barring and Anonymous Caller Reject services on Sunday (19/1). They used to cost £3.25 per month and £3.88 per month respectively – or £86 per year for the pair.
However, further investigations show that TalkTalk is the only one of the major home phone providers which offers these features free. Earlier this month, BT started charging customers £1.75 a month for both its 1571 answerphone service and the caller display feature. Which sounds a bit of a piss-take really.
It says the move will help customers avoid nuisance, scam and unwanted calls, which is doubtful as the beggars still manage to get through somehow.
Anyway, new and existing TalkTalk home phone customers can use it for free now, but if you don't have the services, you'll need to manually activate them by logging into your online TalkTalk account.
