0844, 0845, 0870 Replacement Numbers for Govenment Agencies

Many Govenment Agencies are being forced to change the telephone numbers used for contacting them for Customer Servcies, complaint lines, information lines,  etc.

This comes at a difficult time for most agencies as currenly the mobile Phone industry charges for Freephone calls, which will change in early 2015 to make Freephone calls free to the caller.   

So what are the options available, to lower the cost for callers?

5"Since porting our Freephone number to Creative Telecoms, we have had a greater level of control over our marketing budget, because all of the calls are easily measured, this is due to the comprehensive reporting, also dealing with the customer services is quick, efficient and a pleasure. I would recommend to others."
