You have probably seen them around but what are 03 numbers and how much do they cost?
Ofcom introduced UK-wide 03 numbers as an alternative to chargeable 08 numbers, such as 0870.
These new numbers allow organisations to have a single national point of contact without consumers having to pay extra to call them.
This includes ourselves at the Technology Group. From today we are encouraging all our customers to use our new 0345 numbers to contact us, this is a simple matter of replacing the 08 with an 03 but to confirm:
Main Number 0345 450 7444
Support Desk 0345 450 6999
Partner Support 0345 450 7333
Fax 0345 450 7111
Calls to 03 numbers cost no more than a national rate call to an 01 or 02 number and count towards any inclusive minutes in the same way as 01 and 02 calls.
These rules apply to calls from any type of line including mobile, BT, other fixed line or payphone.
If you have any questions, or would like to discuss how these new changes affect your company and your own 08 numbers then please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss it further.
