0800 & 0808 numbers are Freephone numbers available for use by any Ltd company, Charity, PLC, LLP or UK sole trader. They are both ranges widely recognised by the general public. 0500 numbers were/are still used by some UK businesses as a similar Freephone number. However Ofcom have allocated some 05 numbers to I.P ranges now - so are not allowing any UK suppliers to offer these as new Freephone numbers.
