Caller Line Identity (CLI)
When you make a call, the identity of your calling line is
transmitted along with the instructed destination of the call. This
happens even if you opt to conceal your identity from the ultimate
recipient of the call. It is that identity, your CLI, that enables
us to attach that call to your account when the time comes to
bill it. The development of the modern alternative telecoms
industry dates from the introduction of this technical

See the section entitled Automatic Call Routing for the former; we will

its origination.(which might of course
include friendly calls). This is the Anonymous
