provider of memorable phone numbers and inbound call solutions,
is for the first time offering its customers access to select a
number from the new 03 number ranges.
the 1st October, new and existing customers who act fast will have
the opportunity to pick the choicest memorable 03
numbers, allocated on a first-come first-served basis.
030 number range, which includes 0300
numbers and 0303
numbers, has been specifically allocated by Ofcom for use by
not-for-profit organisations, such as charities, and public sector
organisations, for example Government departments, local councils,
NHS organisations, GP practices, schools, colleges and universities.
With 0300 or 0303 numbers, organisations are able to differentiate
themselves from commercial businesses and callers can be more confident
about who they are calling.
Tameside and Glossop branch of the RSPCA, the well-known animal
welfare charity, are already using their new 0300 numbers. The Ministry
of Defence is the first of the Whitehall Departments to sign up
to using 03 numbers. Many local councils have already positively
assessed the benefits of using 03 numbers and have made a commitment
to use 03 numbers when they are released, which include South Beds,
Wirral and Trafford councils.

033 number range. With 033 numbers, businesses can present a positive
image, where they are pro-active in responding to caller concerns

numbers, such as 0870 and 0871 numbers. Consumers will have a clear
understanding of the price that they are paying to call 03 numbers,
as the cost of calling will be the same as calls to geographic numbers
(normal landline numbers starting 01 or 02).

memorable phone numbers and inbound call solutions and the 2nd largest
