      Re: Sky to drop 0870 numbers

      I believe the new Ofcom guidelines are due to come into force in March of this year. Essentially, when the 0845 and 0870 numbers were launched, they were advertised as "local call rate" and "national call rate" numbers and at the time, they were. Since then, however, the costs of calls to geographic numbers has dropped considerably, but the cost of the 0845 and 0870 calls has not, making them, in effect, premium rate numbers.

      The Ofcom rules will force telcos to reduce the rates they charge for 0845 and 0870 numbers to levels which are more comparable with the typical costs of local and national call rates. This will dramatically reduce the amount of money that companies like Sky can make out of these numbers. After the change, an 0870 number and 03xx should be charged at similar rates, and the only difference is 03xx numbers will be included in any "inclusive minutes" deal you may have with your telephone provider, whereas the 0870 numbers will not.

      if they had good customer service they would not need to give you a 0800 number. give the cuctomer good technical service and stop using their own router
