Since their introduction in 2007, these 03 numbers have been the only variety of non-geographic number whose charge is officially linked to that of geographic numbers.
No provision has been made for replicating the old 'local rate' or 'national rate' prefixes, as almost all UK telephone operators now charge all landline calls at the same rate, regardless of location.
The organisation receiving the call pays the cost of the call.
Numbers starting with '03' are non-geographic numbers charged at standard geographic rates.
In other cases, such numbers may channel calls directly to a company’s private telephone system or VOIP service.
Developments in telecoms technology mean that advanced call routeing facilities are no longer unique to non-geographic numbers with many suppliers offering the same functionality through 'virtual' geographic numbers.
A non-geographic number is a type of telephone number that is not linked to any specific locality.
