BT Privacy causing pressures on TPS
BT's marketing of their Privacy service is causing a substantial increase in TPS registrations. The effect of this is to constrain UK and EU companies from doing any cold calling. It does not affect people phoning from abroad about companies not based in the UK.
It could have the effect of basically opening up the market entirely to people from abroad and preventing people from the UK from operating. The costs of international calls have come down substantially and it is only really time differences that will have an effect.
