Zurich (ots) - sunrise is leading the way in Switzerland with a
new service to protect consumers against dialers and unwanted 090x
connections, providing information to interested members of the
public on a web page at www.sunrise.ch/0900 and sending out bill
inserts to customers.
It happens so quickly: a click of the mouse to confirm, a
keystroke in the wrong place - and before you know it, huge charges
for Internet connections or phone calls to 090x numbers turn up on
your monthly phone bill.
Now sunrise is taking steps to counteract this situation. A new
and unique homepage at www.sunrise.ch/0900 provides comprehensive and
clear information, answering questions such as:
- What are dialers and how do they generate such horrendous phone
charges while we're surfing?
- What do we need to watch out for when dialing premium rate numbers?
- What kind of help and technical assistance can we get in the event
that a dialer has already installed itself?
- What is the legal situation and where can we find important links
- How can we get connections to these numbers blocked by sunrise?
sunrise is providing this wide-ranging information campaign purely
as a service for its customers and all other interested members of
the public. A bill insert will also be sent to sunrise customers to
inform them about the new website at www.sunrise.ch/0900.
