GrinWe need use our consumer power to say enough is enough and 'No' to 0844/0870/0871 non-geographic numbers and say 'Yes' to UK local geographic numbers. All the businesses, public and government bodies who use a non-geo numbers can easily register a UK local geo numbers at:

Can't agree with you there (many 0844 and 0871 numbers are used by telecoms calls providers as gateway numbers for other services - typically for overseas calls).  The revenue sharing aspect then pays for the legitimate service.

That use is justified and not in any way a rip off.

I also note that DM-Telecom.co.uk are a supplier of all the non-geographic numbers and advise that having a non geographic number "improves a companies professional image".  Somewhat contradictory!

I mean not all businesses or companies should use local geo numbers as you rightly pointed out that many 0844 and 0871 numbers are used by telecoms calls providers as gateway numbers for other services - typically for overseas calls. But not for businesses/companies customer care numbers, doctors' surgeries and government agencies except charities which can be understandable to get few quid out of the call.
