Swisscom introduces call filter for mobile connections

Thursday 30 November 2017 | 11:25 CET | News
Swisscom has introduced a call filter for mobile connections, the only operator in Switzerland to do so. This allows customers to block aggressive and unwanted advertising calls and calls from call centres that do not comply with the code of honour of industry association callnet.ch. Breaches include, for example, ignoring the star entry in the Swisscom directories or making calls at unacceptable times (early in the morning, late in the evening, weekends, public holidays).
