Non-Geographic Numbering Charges

Ofcom Non Geographic calling charge changes

It's becoming tiresome analysing the theodicy of upcoming changes to Non-Geographic Numbering in the UK. That said, after a timely read of some industry blogs and a text message from EE, some operators can begin to smile.

The majority of providers are seemingly taking the opportunity to massively upscale service charge rates and strategically move ranges under the radar of PhonePayPlus.

Couple this with some audacious access charges (see photo) and a storm cloud is looming.

Not only will there be a mass exodus towards national rate 03 numbers but VoIP providers can take further advantage of the fallout.

In offering instantly available alternatives operators can adapt but how to further negate originating networks with high access-charges (the unregulated dirty component).

Simply using a softphone client and take advantage of a VoIP provider’s rate card or simpler still; dial-through (think of it as a cloud based calling card).

Dial-through allows you to assign a number, say geographic to keep the rate down or free. When called, you can authenticate via a PIN or the calling CLI and then dial out using the VoIP provider’s rate card.

Dial through is available from VoiceHost at no additional cost.
