03 Numbers Backed by OFCOM – News Update

OFCOM (the telecoms regulator) is currently consulting on simplifying UK non-geographic numbers (including the cost of calling 0845, 0844 and 0871 numbers). They today commented on 03 UK-wide numbers: "The 03 range is the logical choice as the only non-geographic number range to be linked to the price of a normal landline call; it is already set up to serve this purpose and no regulatory change is required. Whilst usage and consumer awareness of the range has up to now been relatively low (albeit usage has been increasing), we consider the package of changes that we are minded to introduce should stimulate greater awareness of the range and encourage usage."
