Replace your 08 number with a better alternative

08 number costs are changing. Customers using these numbers are advised to replace 08 numbers with one of these more attractive alternatives.

Lose 08 Now Ask Me How In response to public confusion over the cost of calling 08xx numbers (eg. 0844, 0845, 0870, 0871), Ofcom recently changed their pricing framework.

Many telecoms companies (both landline and mobile) are exploiting this by charging much more for calls to these numbers, making them unattractive for customers to call. When you depend on these numbers to attact customers this can make a substantial impact on your bottom line.

0870 numbers have been particularly hard-hit, as they were being charged at geographical rates (often free) but now will typically attract a charge of 50p/minute or more.

If you want to replace your 08 check out your options
and take a look at our special offers.

Your Options

Most of our customers using 08 numbers will want to change to something more affordable.

There are several options:

Switch to an 03 Non Geographic Number

Either 0333 xxx xxxx, 0345 xxx xxxx, 0370 xxx xxxx
These are non-geographic in nature, but geographic in their economics.

Switch to a Geographic 'Local' Number

More and more of our customers are going "old school" and reverting to numbers related to their area (or an area they aspire to!). These are also the best bet if you wish to be called from overseas.

Switch to a new 0800 Freephone Number

Ofcom got it right by insisting 0800 numbers are free to call, even from mobiles. 0800 numbers cost you a little more to receive calls on, but they send the message that you are prepared to go the extra mile to make life easy for your customers.
