UK Phone Numbers are running out...

OFCOM are in a consultation period at the moment which will likely end in February 2011.

Yet again they are faced with a thorny problem as phone numbers are running out.

It's coming up for 7 years since an additional area code was introduced in the London area when 0203 was rolled out to accompany the existing 0207 and 0208 prefixes. Although this action made ten million more numbers available it looks likely that customers will have to dial the full number including the area code when calling from a landline to a landline umber just as they do when calling from a mobile phone to a landline.

UK cities that are rapidly running out of numbers include Derby, Brighton and Blackpool.

A safeguard may be to buy a London phone number now.

Further details can be obtained from DBS Telecoms online press release.

London phone number testimonial

It's always nice to get an unsolicited testimonial from a dbs telecoms customer but this one was particularly pleasing.

"A customer has already phoned me using my fab easy London number (020 8914 8914) just 30 minutes after it was connected - thank you so much! "

Nottingham leads the way with a new 3 digit health number

There has much reporting in the media recently over the abuse of the UK's long standing emergency number 999. Many trivial calls are made to the 999 service which can clog up the telecoms systems and make it harder for people with genuine emergencies to get the extra fast connection time they may need.

The population of Nottingham now have an alternative to dialling 999. Managers at the NHS hope that the new 111 number will deter the public from calling 999 or visiting the casualty departments of local hospitals if they need advice on non-life threatening situations.

"The 111 service is intended to be a halfway house between 999 and NHS Direct the latter of which was set up to give information and advice on less serious medical problems." commented David Clarke of DBS Telecoms

DBS adds Facebook "Like" button to telecoms pages

As part of its social media strategy DBS has added the Facebook "Like" button to the pages on its website that it uses to market 0800, 0844, 0845 and local phone numbers.

Clicking the "Like" button on any of the telecoms will automatically place a link to the DBS site on a visitors facebook profile. This will raise awareness of DBS’s products and give them added exposure to potential customers via the Facebook community.

Simply put, social media strategies such as this work on the “snowball” principle that you know your friends but you don’t know your friends’ friends.
