The Big Question
We have launched The Big Question which we suggest be posed to all users of 0845, 0844 and 0843 numbers:
The campaign for reform to 084, 087 and 09 numbers has always been about getting the truth out — that is, the presence of the Service Charge with each and every call.
Now that Ofcom has confirmed that users of these numbers will have to tell the truth, will they do so now or will they wait until they are forced to do so?
For more information on The Big Question, see the blogging.

What is fairtelecoms?
Over the last decade the market in telecommunications services has blossomed. Consumers now have a wealth of diverse services to choose from.
It’s not all a bed of roses as there are some unfair and unjust practices out there. The widespread misuse of expensive 0845, 0844 and 0843 phone numbers is a daily bugbear for the public. Silent calls from corporate bodies, which are now permitted by Ofcom, are a nuisance and serve to unnerve vulnerable members of society.
The Fair Telecoms Campaign is about bringing these and other issues to the fore, and pushing for solutions. Click here to read more.
