MTS Home Phone Spam Block

Does anyone know if MTS has implemented a home phone spam block...much the same as SHAW has started?

With SHAW I think you have to activate the service so I'm wondering if MTS has followed suit?

Shaw is more of a VOIP service and runs their telephone services off of a soft switch which allows them more features like that.

BellMTS as far as I am aware are still on the older Nortel (now Ribbon Communications) DMS series switches which don't allow customer interaction like a soft switch.

All the telco's in the US and Canada have been required by the FCC/CRTC to look at something like shaken/stir technology to reduce the number of spoofed calls which in turn should reduce the number of spam calls at no extra feature charge to their customers.
