0844, 0845, 0870, or 0871 telephone numbers are all charged at preimum rate. To find a geographical number look
here.

This thread was prompted by someone about to call Tescos to complain about a late delivery on their premium rate number!

I rarely use a premium rate one now and it really annoys me when I can't find an alternative.

0845 is charged at local rate

0845 is now deemed to be "premium rate" number as the old "local" rates are now so much higher than most people are being charged per call.

The new "local" rate prefix is 03xxx and will genuinely be cahrged at whatever your calling plan charges for local numbers.
