Yet more savings from Planet Numbers

2nd July 2015

What a great few weeks it’s been recently, not only is the weather getting better, but so is the outlook for all UK callers too! Here at Planet Numbers we’ve managed to further reduce the rates on a huge selection of our international call destinations, plus Ofcom have now introduced the new rules that we’ve been talking about recently.

The changes came into effect on 1st July 2015 and mean that all calls to 0800 and 0808 freephone numbers from UK mobiles are now completely free. This means there is no longer a huge gap between free calls from landlines, and extortionate calls made from mobiles.

The other major change that Ofcom have introduced is the new split-charging system for all Non Geographical Numbers (NGN’s) which include 084, 087, 118 and 09 numbers. Under the new system, each call you make to NGN’s will consist of two separate charges, both clearly displayed to make understanding call charges much easier. You will now be charged an Access Charge, which is set by your telephone provider, and a Service Charge, which is set by the company you are calling. So when dialling abroad through Planet Numbers, you will pay our displayed Service Charge plus your provider’s Access Charge. Note that there may be a difference in Access Charge between residential and business telephones (both landline and mobile), which will be set by your telephone provider.

If your business uses an NGN for incoming calls, you must now display your Service Charge per minute on all advertising across each media platform (print, radio and television) in order to comply with the new regulations.

It is hoped that the introduction of clear Access Charges will promote competition between the large telephone providers, meaning they will offer the end consumer great deals just as we do at Planet Numbers.
