Internet Security Threat Report 2014

A legal challenge to BT's decision last year to block access to numbers suspected of being used by rogue dialler companies has been delayed.

Birmingham-based Opera Telecom was due to have its case against BT heard at the High Court tomorrow (Friday). It is suing BT for blocking access to lines Opera leases to adult content outfit Netcollex and is seeking compensation for lost revenues.

However, the case has been postponed and is unlikely to be heard for another month or so.

"Tomorrow's court hearing on rogue diallers has been postponed as Opera requested extra time to prepare their case," said a BT spokesman. ®
