BT told to withdraw call facility

OFTEL YESTERDAY rapped British Telecom for the call completion facility recently introduced to its BT Talking Pages service. The telecoms watchdog, headed by David Edmonds (pictured), ordered that call completion be withdrawn immediately on competition grounds. The ruling followed a complaint from Scoot.com, the Internet and telephone information service which earns fees by connecting callers to businesses when a phone number is requested. In late May, BT launched a similar service offering call completion to all new and existing advertisers free of charge for 12 months. Scoot.com closed up 2.25 pence at 41 pence.
