Over the past five years, the Keep Me Posted campaign has been working hard to retain people’s right to receive paper bills at no extra cost. Now, with 12 countries running the campaign and a number of successes under its belt, it’s spreading its message worldwide. From September 16 this year, BT altered its policy on customer billing. There was no big fanfare, not much in the papers, and certainly nothing on TV.
