Calling 0800, 0808 and 116 From Mobiles
Ofcom has announced that mobile operators will no longer be able to charge for calls to 0800, 0808 or 116 numbers, however, we have to wait until 2015.
Currently mobile operators currently charge up to 40p per minute to these numbers.
The current rules for using other non-geographic numbers 08, 09, and 118 are vague and Ofcom has requested that the rules be clarified. It is hoped that these rule changes will help consumers understand the costs of calling these numbers and prevent consumers from receiving unexpectedly high bills.
According to the Chief Executive of Ofcom, Ed Richards, these changes are “the biggest for UK telephone customers in more than a decade”.
