0345 Geographic Numbers

We are pleased to confirm that following a recent review by Ofcom of geographic and non-geographic call number charging transparency, JCS has followed their recommendations and has adopted an 0345 number to ensure that our customers do not get hit by hidden call charges.

Our numbers remain the same but now have prefix of 0345. The 0845 number will still work but our recommendation is for you to start using the 0345 number. For most customers an 0345 number is cheaper than using an 0845 number.
