Phone-paid Services Authority
The premium rate telephone regulator, PhonepayPlus, has decided to change its name to the Phone-paid Services Authority.

The new name has been adopted because the organisation thinks that it makes what they do clearer to premium rate users.

This is the second name change, as they used to be ICSTIS (from 1986 to 2007).

PhonepayPlus actually do a decent job of regulating premium rate phone lines. They are quick to act upon complaints from the public and are very effective at rooting out the scammers - and they regulate only by insisting on good service levels and not by regulating content.

Compared to the pathetic Ofcom, the inconsistent ASA or the dreadful ATVOD, I'd say that PhonepayPlus is a marvellous regulator.

RE: Phone-paid Services Authority
I've seen a few news stories recently about phone scammers. I find it amazing how brazen some of these crooks are.

Fortunately the fines from the PSA can be seriously hefty, so those scammers who get caught really are punished.
