What is an 0333 number?

Customers only pay the same amount as a landline call to a 01 or a 02 number. And the price is the same for calls from mobiles.

0333 numbers are included in any discount schemes or inclusive call minutes that you may already have with landline or mobile phone operators.

Ofcom, the telecommunications regulator, introduced 0333 numbers so that consumers could have “confidence in the cost of their calls”. Visit Ofcom for more information.

Unlike 08 numbers, 03 numbers cost the same to call as geographic landline numbers (starting 01 and 02), even from a mobile phone.[1] They are also included as part of inclusive call minutes and discount schemes from all major mobile phone and landline operators.
