Eliminate On Hold Music

I thought of this idea when at a conference, during the introductory instructions when they mentioned not putting the phone on hold due to possible music. I’m sure everyone’s had this experience – someone puts the call on hold and music starts playing. This could be considered a nicety if it’s just you, but is problematic during a conference call as those still actively on can no longer hear each other.


I don’t think the government should be spending money to play music to those on hold. Please vote for this if you think we should reallocate the funding. Hope silence reigns.
