Ofcom moves regulation of 0871 Numbers to Icstis

News /

As part of the changes to the UK National Numbering Plan and Number Translation Services (or NTS), Ofcom will extend the role of the premium rate regulator ICSTIS to include calls made to 0871 numbers.

This will happen at the same time as changes on 0870 Numbers (January, 2008). Ofcom will also extend ICSTIS's remit to include all adult services regardless of price. Any adult services currently provided on 08 numbers will have to move to the designated 09 ranges.
