Plusnet Call Protect is a fantastic new call feature that redirects nuisance calls on your landline to junk voicemail, where they belong. It's absolutely free, and it's quick and simple to set up.

Plusnet Call Protect operates in three modes:

  • You can establish and maintain your own personal list of up to 100 nuisance numbers.
  • You can also opt to divert specific sorts of numbers to junk voicemail, such as international numbers, withheld numbers, and unavailable numbers.
