IPA alerts members to Ofcom simplification of service number pricing

Ofcom has introduced a new system intended to simplify pricing of service numbers from this week (1 July 2015). These are telephone numbers starting with 084, 087, 09, and 118.


It is also making  0800 and 0808 numbers free to call from UK consumer mobiles. Agencies need to be aware that Ofcom is changing the requirements for communication of such pricing to consumers, and this will have an effect on marketing messages required across all media.
