Investor Relations. This criticism had culminated in a submission to the Prime Minister of a memorial signed by Members of Parliament asking for an enquiry into the status and organisation of the Post Office with a view to effecting any necessary changes in its constitution. It was noted at the time that for the previous 54 years operators had not been allowed to say "Good Morning" when taking a call, only such formal phrases as "Number, please". The 'Pip' tone signal was provided on timed calls as a regular feature for the first time from 15 August. There were clear advantages for all parties to the agreement: manufacturers avoided having to tender for all exchanges, parallel development work was unnecessary, manufacturers all had a 'fair' share of available Post Office business, and advantageous prices were negotiated for the Post Office.

Wickham, Jr. From landlines other than BT, the call price for and numbers is usually higher than from BT landlines as those other operators add their own unregulated markup on top of the revenue share. From mobiles, numbers cost from 10 to 30 pence per minute and calls to and numbers cost up to 50 pence per minute at that time. The revenue share is only a small proportion of the cost billed to callers when using a mobile.
After , most landline providers no longer differentiated between local and national calls, charging a single geographic rate for calling 01 and 02 numbers nationwide. Many landline providers also started offering inclusive call bundles for 01 and 02 numbers and by the vast majority of landline phone users were on this type of deal.
Bundled minutes from mobiles include 01, 02 and 07 numbers. Bundles effectively make all calls to 01 and 02 numbers "free" for very many people. Since , it has been illegal to describe numbers as "local rate" or "lo-call" or numbers as "national rate". A small number of landline providers and a smaller number of mobile providers have allowed and a few landline providers have also allowed numbers to be used in inclusive minutes bundles.
However, and numbers are never inclusive. From landlines, and numbers cost anything up to 20 pence per minute. From mobile phones, and numbers cost anything up to 45 pence per minute.
The price includes a revenue-share "premium" or "service charge" of up to 5 pence per minute for numbers and up to 10 pence per minute for numbers. The premium is passed on to the terminating telecoms company. In , additional premium rate numbers in the x range started to be allocated. Initially just , but latterly also and Until , the domestic directory enquiries service within the UK had been reached by dialling from a landline. The service had been run solely by BT.
In December , the market was opened up by Oftel for new providers to run additional directory enquiries services in competition. BT's service moved to , and dialling ceased working in August New providers used , , and many others. Nowadays there are more than a hundred such providers   and more than different tariffs. In , the number range came into use, as was now almost fully allocated. This draft plan proposed changing the names of many areas from whatever name BT had previously used. Although the data in these files should be identical, there have been and still are very many differences between them.
In one background document  from , Ofcom states that In order to conform to the National Telephone Numbering Plan NTNP , the names of the following Geographic Area Codes have changed - , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , However, several of the above area codes did not see any name change. The Ofcom proposal  also contained a large number of spelling mistakes in the proposed area code names.
Some of those errors were rectified within weeks or months, while others have still not been fixed eight years later. There are also several areas which changed name but are not listed above. Additionally some names were changed in one Ofcom document but were not updated in the other Ofcom document until several years later.
Some have still not been updated or corrected. In , Ofcom started allocating numbers for VoIP services. Soon after, VoIP services also appeared on geographic 01 and 02 numbers. Uptake of numbers remains low. Some years earlier, x to x had been designated "broadband services". With changes in technology, this allocation had never been used. It was removed from the plan in With calls for premium rate adult services to be more clearly defined and separated from other premium rate services, the and codes were to be no longer issued for new services.
Some companies had attempted to avoid restrictions placed on Premium Rate Services by instead running adult services on various ,    and other number ranges. Regulations were eventually drafted  to force these services to use only the designated x and pre-existing and numbers. Due to concerns raised by patients having to pay unfair costs when calling NHS services by telephone,  the usage of non-geographic numbers was banned by the Department of Health in Around GP surgeries used numbers and were also coming under greater scrutiny    with a few reverting to geographic numbers.
Many of these services quickly moved to or revenue share numbers as they were not specifically banned, even though they also cost more to call than 01 and 02 numbers and in many cases cost more to call than numbers. The tendency to unlawfully refer to x numbers as 'local rate' or 'lo-call' numbers hid the true cost of calling them,                     compared to the price for calling geographic numbers. Contravening ASA advice,     surgeries were told that numbers were "lo-call" numbers   and subsequent tariff comparisons ignored both packages with inclusive minutes and users with mobile phones.
In December , Lord Norman Warner sent a letter to all Primary Care Trust Chief Executives drawing attention to the Central Office of Information guidance on telephone numbering, which suggested that healthcare providers consider adopting an 03 telephone number so that people " do not have to pay over the odds to contact their local services ". In recent years, there has been much discussion in the media about the use of numbers in the healthcare sector, mainly due to the costs incurred by people who have to dial these numbers as the primary form of contact with their local healthcare services, especially when calling from mobiles.
The issue was debated in Parliament in early In , Leicester City NHS Trust looked into their usage of telephone numbers and revealed a complex set of issues to be solved,  some of which were fixed later in the year. The Department of Health published a consultation   at the end of calling for views on the usage of numbers in the NHS    which received more than responses. In response, the British Medical Association BMA stated "GP practices using telephone numbers must be allowed to serve out the terms of their contracts with telephone suppliers if the government decides to ban them from the NHS,"  as many had already mistakenly signed up to long contracts for numbers.
Although numbers were banned in , even as late as there were NHS bodies only now just getting around to complying with that ban. In , the Advertising Standards Authority ASA started taking action against companies that falsely represent that " numbers are 'local rate' [ sic ] or 'lo-call' [ sic ] calls" or " numbers are 'national rate' [ sic ] calls". After , several operators also offered 01, 02 and the newly created 03 numbers as "free minutes" within an "evening and weekend" calls bundle or within an "anytime" calls bundle.
As a result of ever increasing mobile phone ownership, and especially the introduction of mobile broadband in the UK, the xx number range was opened in October In , the new number for non-emergency calls to the police began trials in several areas with a call cost of 10 pence per call.
Calls now cost 15 pence per call from landlines and mobiles, but have always been free from public payphones. The charge will be scrapped in April and will be free from all UK phones: landlines, mobiles and payphones. In February , Ofcom announced the 03 range of numbers was being brought into use  and the first numbers were issued in May. Although allocated as non-geographic, these were to be charged at the same rate as geographic 01 and 02 numbers from both landline and mobile and were also to be included within "free minutes" bundles for subscribers with a call package.
Further details are in the 03 numbers section above. In May , Ofcom allocated the first numbers. These follow on from the earlier code which was now fully allocated. In November , the first numbers were allocated. These follow on from the earlier, and now fully allocated, code. These are used for revenue share services and are generally not included in bundled minutes from either mobiles or landlines.
From landlines these numbers cost anything up to 20 pence per minute and from mobile phones anything up to 45 pence per minute. Due to continued misuse of the and number ranges, ICSTIS consulted on additional regulation in and announced in that both number ranges were to be regulated from After some delay they were eventually taken into the jurisdiction of PhonepayPlus  in In , a new area code was created for Ebbsfleet.

Adjacent area codes no longer had enough projected spare capacity for the new development to use, so was allocated. Ofcom had previously considered that personal numbers should migrate to 06, to replace the prefix that is sometimes confused with mobile phone numbers. Ofcom wanted and 06 numbers to have a price cap, and 07 numbers to be used exclusively for mobile phones.
