Ofcom to impose wholesale cost cap on 070 numbers

Friday 8 December 2017 | 10:46 CET | News
UK regulator Ofcom has published a consultation on proposals for the regulation of phone numbers starting with 070. These numbers are designed to be used as 'follow me' services, where calls are diverted from one number to another, allowing the person being called to keep their number private. The consultation closes on 28 February 2018.
