Ofcom confirms 0800, 0808 and 116 numbers to be free from mobiles from 2015

Ofcom has confirmed that 800, 0808 and 116 numbers will be free to call from mobile phones but added that this will not come into effect until 2015.

Ofcom has acted to stop a practice that should be free.

Ofcom will kick off a national campaign to inform the mobile-using public that 'freephone will mean free', as well as confirming that premium rate numbers will also be transparent, with operators having to say whatever service charge they will be adding and how much that call will cost.

The reason for the long delay is down to Ofcom giving mobile . . .
