Hi @hosay299 

 

For accuracy the headline is 

Ofcom asks phone networks to block foreign scam calls, not orders.

The article does say the majority of companies have agreed, so it's a good bet TalkTalk will have agreed as per this article https://www.cityam.com/networks-agree-to-block-foreign-fraudster-calls/

It does have a statement from TalkTalk stating they are an early adopter and have been doing so already.

 

As to the effectiveness, the BBC article does cast some doubt on whether it is fully viable on copper lines.

 

no system is foolproof so some are bound to still get through.
