Richard Lloyd, executive director at Which?, said:
“It’s good to see Ofcom flexing its muscles against abandoned and silent calls. With so many people telling us they are being bombarded by nuisance calls and texts, we have been calling for all the relevant regulators to work together to properly police and punish those responsible with substantial fines and suspension of licences.”
Last month Which? launched a new campaign, Calling Time on Nuisance Calls and Texts, after finding that in the last three months seven in 10 people (70%) received unsolicited calls and four in ten (40%) an unwanted text.
