*Ofcom has been in consultation to tackle consumer concern and confusion over the cost of calling businesses and other organisations on numbers such as 08. Ofcom is proposing to standardise and simplify how a wide range of non-geographic numbers are priced which will help to promote transparency and competition in delivering services through these numbers. Under the proposals, calls to 0800 numbers will be free from mobiles. The proposals are imminent and are based on new powers which will be introduced as a result of revised European telecoms legislation.
