0800 calls will be free from all mobiles
Last April, UK telecoms regulator Ofcom suggested some changes to the way non-geographic numbers are regulated.
It wanted calls to numbers that began 080 and 116 to be free from all fixed-line and mobile phones; currently some mobile operators charge for calls that are ‘free’ from fixed lines. In addition, it proposed a new tariff structure for other non-geographic calls.
