0870 Ofcom August 2009 change

Changes to the pricing of all 0870 numbers...

On the 1st of August 2009, Ofcom introduced changes to the pricing of all 0870 numbers. This change brought down the cost to call 0870 numbers for all those calling them.

Since then, calls to 0870 numbers are now usually included in BT call plans & from mobile networks too meaning that they can be called as though the caller was calling a landline 01 or 02 number.

These changes meant that the 0870 number owners went from receiving a revenue share per minute for the calls they received to having to pay a charge per minute to received calls.

Many organizations therefore moved to a different phone number so that they could either continue to earn revenue/minute or so they did not have to pay/minute to continue to receive calls.

For advice you can contact Ofcom on: 0300 123 3333.
