I wrote to Shoosmiths Solicitors about their 0870 telephone numbers and pointed out that they cost more to call than normal geographical numbers. I also pointed out that they are a customer of Global Telecom; see client list.

Dear Mr ****

Your email with regard to 0870 numbers has been passed to me by Alan Harrison in order that I can provide you the correct numbers to publish as alternatives on the saynoto0870 website.

We fully sympathise with the points you raise and are not happy about some of the underlying issues. We entered into an arrangement for 0870 numbers as a means of providing a unified presence and clearly defined single set of numbers for the convenience of our clients and have no wish to be costing our clients more than is necessary. Unfortunately we are still unable to provide a more efficient solution to this problem and have therefore decided at this stage to retain our 0870 numbers. However, we are ensuring our fee earners are aware that they should make their clients aware that the old area codes remain effective in the background should they prefer to use these. As a result of this I have listed below all our area switchboard numbers so that any users of the website can select the number of their choice.

Northampton
0870 086 3100
01604 543100

Basingstoke
0870 086 6200
01256 696200

Birmingham
0870 086 4100
0121 335 4440

Milton Keynes
0870 086 8300
01908 488300

Nottingham
0870 086 5000
0115 906 5000

Reading
0870 086 8800
01189 658765

Solent
0870 086 6800
01489 616800


Best wishes

Marvellous.
Well done.

Of course, using 0800 would have been the optimum solution, but sadly that is not part of the UK mindset  Smiley

Shoosmiths have converted the main  0870 numbers they used in the past to  0370 numbers and have started promoting them  see list of numbers here: http://www.shoosmiths.co.uk/contact-us-25.aspx
