Telephone Preference Service – Postcard from the trenches

Reading Time: < 1 minute

I had an interesting conversation with some friends working in telemarketing. Most of the companies that have signed up to the TPS are small-to-medium sized businesses. They welcome this as it means that they can pre-filter their prospects, a couple of major names stuck out in the conversation, Moss Bros the tailors and Carphone Warehouse have both signed up their main switchboard numbers.I found Carphone Warehouse particularly ironic given the amount of calls I have received from them asking me whether I would be interested in signing up to their TalkTalk alternative landline phone company service.
