...BT will block access to any premium number it believes is being used by "rogue dial-ups". It will do this straight away, rather than wait for regulators to take action...


This can only be a good thing. :D

I'd wager that they still will not admit that these diallers were not installed willingly!
Be wary of strong drink. It may make you shoot at tax collectors, and miss!

Awesome. That's the third major telecom company doing that recently. Hopefully all of them will do it soon.
