AVOID UNWANTED TELEMARKETING CALLS
Tired of telemarketers interrupting your daily routine? F&B
Communications is pleased to announce a new service called Telemarketer
Call Screening available to customers in the Bennett, Calamus, Delmar,
Lowden and Wheatland exchanges.
Telemarketer Call Screening is a service created for customers who
are frustrated or annoyed by calls from telemarketers.
Calls from telemarketers are typically delivered to a customer's
phone as "unknown" or "out-of-area." This service
intercepts these calls, and announces that the customer does not
accept calls from telemarketers. The advantage is that this is all
done behind the scenes, so the customer's phone does not even ring.
"This service gives our customers peace of mind every time
the phone rings," said Ken Laursen, General Manager of F&B
Communications. "We're committed to providing our customers
with advanced calling features and quality local telephone service."
Telemarketer Call Screening also automatically instructs telemarketers
to add the customer's name to their "Do Not Call" list.
No additional telephone equipment is required to use Telemarketer
also keeps track of the number of calls that are turned away on
a customer's line. Customers can contact F&B Communications
if they would like to see a count of intercepted and blocked calls
on their number.
The monthly charge for Telemarketer Call Screening is $3.95, billed
on the customer's local telephone bill. The $10 calling feature
installation fee is waived through Dec. 31, 2001.
F&B Communications is the local telecommunications provider
offering telephone, cable television, digital broadcast satellite,
Internet and wireless PCS services to customers in the Bennett,
Calamus, Delmar, Lowden and Wheatland exchanges.
Individuals or businesses interested in Telemarketer Call Screening
can call F&B Communications at 563-374-1236 weekdays from 8
a.m. to 5 p.m. to sign up.
