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.
