Re: farmers telecom
You REALLY do not want 0870/0845.
I don't particularly enjoy being able to call Paypal, for example, internationally to the US than it is to call Paypal UK. Same for other multinational companies who will have 800/877/888 in the US, and 0871 (worst of the lot for charges) here.
Why? Because a portion of the call cost can be shared to the company - why pay for people to call YOU about a fault YOU made, when people can pay themselves?
And they are not "premium rate", just the very blurry "local" and "national" rate - even though BT threw out distance based charging a few years ago for geographical numbers.
Premium rate numbers are 09xx, which are much more expensive and far more tightly regulated.
