A hotline for people to tell the authorities about places where hanging wires were dangerous was being unanswered yesterday.

The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission had set up a campaign to encourage people to phone in complaints of where the wires were too low or impeding traffic.

They advertised that 4,500 free power banks would be given to the first callers with information. Pictures then needed to be sent to a Line ID account: @nbtc1200.

The handouts were to be spread over Thailand – 1,000 each in the North, South, Central and North east regions and 500 in Bangkok.

But Daily News reporters who tried the 1200 hotline were met with a standard recorded message that “no staff are available to take the call, please wait”.

They waited and waited and waited….well you get the message.

They gave up waiting.
