Here at BDM Voice, we have just changed our telephone number from 0845 373 4100 to 0333 202 9897 in preparation for the Ofcom changes which will come into effect as of July 1st.
The basis for the changes is being implemented by Ofcom to provide greater transparency to the consumer and to provide a really clear position in respect of the cost of dialling specific Non-Geographic Numbers, e.g. 0843/0844/0845/0870.
One key change is the ability to dial 0800 numbers from a mobile free of charge.
If you’d like to read more about this, you can visit Ofcom’s dedicated website for the UK calling changes here.
To give you comfort, in many cases these changes will have little or no effect, if you are already using 01/02 or 03 numbers.
However, if you are using 08 numbers and you’re interested in moving to 01/02 or 03 numbers, then BDM can provide you with fully-trackable marketing telephone numbers free of charge.
This is a great opportunity to show further clarity to consumers and as this process is implemented we will provide you with further updates via our blog, social media accounts and directly via email/telephone.
In the mean time, if you would like to speak with us about these changes and how they’re likely to effect your business or about setting up a new office telephone system then please call us on 0333 202 9897 or alternatively email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
