The Telephone Preference Service (TPS)

The Telephone Preference Service (TPS) register currently contains 18,045,593 numbers.

Below you will see details of the size of the TPS register at the end of each month together with the number of monthly additions and removals.

Whilst the Corporate Telephone Preference Service (CTPS) requires businesses to re-register their number every year (which is why you can often see large quantities of numbers coming off the register), the TPS register does not require consumers to re-register at any point and so removals from the TPS tend to be few in numbers.
