WHY DO WE HAVE A 03 TELEPHONE NUMBER?
Call our 03 number now and it won’t cost you any more than a local rate call to an 01 or 02 number, or if you have an inclusive minutes package the call will be free, EVEN FROM YOUR MOBILE!
We recognise that everyone needs to cut costs where they can and with more and more people contacting us using their mobile phones we thought it would be a good idea to not only save you money on your Cuesport products but to save you money on your calls too. Calls to 0845 or 0870 numbers can cost up to 27 pence per minute (even 0800 numbers cost up to 20p a minute from mobiles) calls to 03 numbers can cost you nothing at all and the most it will cost is the same as a call to an 01 or 02 number.
The 03 local rate number range has recently been issued by OFCOM (the UK Telecommunications regulator) to help improve consumers trust and confidence in UK phone numbers. The intention is that the 03 number range will be used by businesses, public service organisations and charities that want a presence nationally and by switching from 0870 National Rate Numbers to 03 local rate numbers, consumers will incur no additional charges.
The 03 local rate phone numbers have been created as an alternative to the current chargeable 08 phone numbers (such as 0800, 0845, 0870 and 0871 Numbers). 03 Local rate numbers will allow consumers to have a clear understanding of the prices charged for a call to any 03 number, as the charges made for calling will be the same as the amount charged for calls made to geographic numbers (normal land lines starting 01 or 02).
03 numbers are also included as part of inclusive call minutes and discount schemes from all major mobile phone and land line operators, so if you have free minutes as part of your phone package then the call will cost you NOTHING.
