Introduction
Introduction

  • Part of objective for PRS is to strengthen links between PRS and the use of appropriate numbering ranges.

  • ‘090’ and ‘091’ has been designated for PRS:

    • 090 for PRS content;

    • 091 for PRS non-content.

  • ‘092’ -’099’ has been designated for broadband services.

  • In addition, 090 sub-structure established - relates primarily to definable price points.


Current position
Current position

  • ‘PRS’ services no longer found only behind ‘09’ numbering range.

  • ‘08’ and ‘090/’091’’ number ranges are split by cost:

    • 08 (10ppm or less);

    • 090/091 (over 10ppm).

  • Structure is primarily cost based, and PRS type services are charging under 10ppm and using 08 prefixes.


Prs numbering review
PRS numbering review

  • Two key drivers behind proposed review of PRS numbering arrangements:

    • responses to recent Numbering Conventions consultation showed lack of clarity regarding 08 and 09 numbering;

    • increasing pressure on current numbering resources in the light of new and innovative services.


Oftel consumer research aims
Oftel consumer research - aims

  • Specifically the research aimed to:

    • explore PRS calling behaviour;

    • establish what consumers know and assume about 08 and 09 numbering range:

      • cost;

      • content;

      • and overall structure and sub-structure.

    • understand what consumers want and need to know about 08 and 09 numbers.


Oftel consumer research findings i
Oftel consumer research - findings (i)

  • Cost not a major issue for most PRS users. More important are:

    • content (what the service is).

    • media (where the service is advertised).

  • Numbering prefixes not currently used to aid PRS or SS decision-making:

  • Understanding of current structure is limited:

    • overall sense that ‘08’ is cheaper and ‘safer’ than ‘09’.

    • but details are sketchy.

    • content and non-content split poorly understood.


Oftel consumer research findings ii
Oftel consumer research - findings (ii)

  • When revealed, most surprising element of current structure was 10ppm split:

  • Content ring-fencing unexpected but considered responsible - not a big issue though:

  • Once understood, response to current system is broadly positive:

    • cost-based division is simple and intuitive.


Oftel consumer research future development
Oftel consumer research - future development

  • Biggest issue is breadth of potential call costs within ‘09’ number range:

    • current range between 11ppm and £1.50 per minute considered very broad;

    • extension to £5ppm would raise substantial concerns.

  • However, any developments will need to be simple …

    • based on first number prefixes only;

    • even with widespread use, 0845, 0870 are not widely understood.
