Most likely as of June 2015 the cost of calling 084, 087, 09 and 118 numbers will be made up of two parts which will make it a lot clearer for the caller to distinguish the cost of their call:
- An access charge: This goes to the caller´s phone company, charged as pence per minute. Each carrier will inform his customers how much the access charge will be for calls to service numbers.
- A service charge
How advertisings have to look like in the future has not been fixed yet. As soon as there are new provisions we will inform you as usual. New advertisings could look like this (only a draft):
“Calls cost 20p per minute plus your network access charge.”
In addition, all Freephone numbers (which begin 0800 or 0808) are being made free for consumers to call from all phones, whether mobile or landline.
