    Default New Register To Keep Out Telemarketers

    New register to 'keep out telemarketers'


    Thursday Feb 1 17:43 AEDT
    The federal government has awarded a $12 million contract to build and operate its so-called Do Not Call Register to a subsidiary of Melbourne-based company Service Stream Limited.

    The register will enable people to put their fixed lines and mobile numbers on a list to opt out of receiving a range of telemarketing calls.

    The register is being established because of increasing community concern about the growth in unsolicited telemarketing calls.

    The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) said in a statement that Service Stream Solutions had been awarded the contract in a competitive tender process.

    Listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX), Service Stream Ltd has a workforce of about 3,000.

    The authority said Service Stream was contracted to operate the register for an initial four-year period for $12.1 million, with an option for an additional three years.

    The register is expected to be self-funded after four years, as telemarketers will have to pay a fee to access the register.

    The register is expected to be in action by the end of May 2007.

    From that time it will be unlawful for any non-exempt telemarketer in Australia to call a number on the list.

    We've had this in England for a little while now and its great its stopped a heap of crap phone calls. You still get the occasional one but find out what company they are calling from and report them then they should get a fine.
