Ofcom, the UK’s communication regulator, has come up with a plan to make all 0800 numbers free to call from British mobile phones. In what we assume Is an effort to clear up messy confusion over call charges, the regulator announced it intends to bring mobile freephone calls in line with the charge system already in place with landlines, allowing everyone in the UK call 0800, 0808 and 116 numbers free of charge. By mid-way through 2015, Ofcom have said that they will introduce caps on premium rate calls and make clear the cost of calls to 0845 numbers, encouraging a greater level transparency for people who want a clear of idea of how much they’ll be spending every time they use their phones.
