Direct marketers and the Irish.

The Irish Times yesterday reported on that direct marketing firms have now been banned from phoning more than 61 percent of landline customers. Telecoms regulator ComReg  said that 982,238 people had contacted their phone providers to tell them that they did not want to receive direct marketing calls. There are 1.6 million fixed telephone lines in the State. More than 82,000 people have requested the ban on ‘cold calls’ in the past year. Since mid-2005, all telephone subscribers have the right to opt out of receiving unsolicited calls.

 

Hooray!!
