News - 2007
 

Flextel have always been opposed to mandatory pre-call announcements and indeed advised Ofcom that they were a stupid idea, in breach of international regulations and downright dangerous.

Unsurprisingly, as soon as Ofcom imposed pre-call announcements, health and safety issues started to appear. Flextel have been lobbying Ofcom to remove these dangerous, misleading and annoying announcements, that don't even comply with international standards and have left the UK networks out on a limb!

We are now delighted to tell you that our efforts, on your behalf, have been rewarded. Ofcom have withdrawn the requirement for pre-call announcements on 070 numbers. Ofcom have also issued a notice to all communication providers instructing them to remove the pre-call announcements.

We can confirm that they have now been removed from the BT network and we look forward to their total removal from all other networks, as soon as possible.
