Finally, someone stands up for UK businesses and considers the very real impact of Ofcom’s proposed changes to 0870 regulation.

If you’re not already aware, from February 2008, organisations that currently use 0870 numbers will no longer be able to receive revenue share from 0870 calls and fund advanced services. Instead, they will have the choice of continuing to use their 0870 numbers and pay for calls received or face the daunting prospect of having to migrate to new number ranges. Either way this will mean significant cost and upheaval to the businesses concerned.
