Ring Ring!...Ring Ring!

Starting from today Australian households are going to be a little calmer around dinner time.


Because the government has just launched it anti-telemarketing Do Not Call register.

Fingers crossed this should mean the end of those pesky telemarketers who always seem to call when you’re in the kitchen making dinner.

Companies who breach the legislation could end up being fined as much as a million dollars.

At the official launch today Comms Minister Helan Coonan pointed out, with considerable irony, that several other countries had also introduced similar legislation, most notably India.
