We have call screening and the telephone preference registration but these are coming from new numbers all the time and are international and therefore not covered by TPS.

Were on Talk Talk with Call Guard enabled it's a free service if you have broadband and phone. We have their fibre and phone and get free calls as well as the other add on services for the phone.

Noticed an issue with the landline yesterday so run a diagnostic on the app, it shows there's a problem. On the phone to Sky as I type (I'm on hold) and apparently there's a configuration issue which will be fixed within 72 hours. They also said it's impacting my broadband speed, not something I've noticed...

My attitude, being an Old Fart, is that it's too much information. Without the 'app' you wouldn't have had to take any action at all. I know, I'm a dinosaur!
