Ofcom to make calls to 0800 numbers from a mobile free

If you ever thought you were being ripped off by mobile phone providers when you pay through the nose to call an 0800 number when the same call made from a landline is free - then Ofcom agrees.

  • The average cost to call an 0800 number from a mobile phone was a cool 40 pence per minute
