Ofcom, who as you know, are currently on their white steed doing good deeds, are at it again.

They’re consulting on a new schema for non-geographic numbers so that it’s clearer what calls to the different number groups will cost.

The headline is that calls to 0800 numbers will be free, no matter what you use to call them with – including your mobile; which is nice.

This is very good news but you have to ask why they were allowed not to be free to start with, why it’s taken so long to do anything about it and why it won’t change for ages yet – 2015?

Ofcom are reviewing all the non-geographic ranges to attempt some consistency, but they seem to have chosen a two part charge, which, it seems to me, is going to result in another mess.

But more on that later, meanwhile, this is their proposed numbering guide:
