Phone Number Changes

This affects the majority of our customers.

UUnet are restructuring their network to allow for expansion and part of this includes a change to new dial-up 0845 numbers. From the end September the 0645 telephone numbers will no longer be available for dial-up access.

If you are using a telephone discount scheme (such as BT Friends & Family) this will also need to be updated.

How does this affect you?
