0871 numbers are service numbers which attract a special rate surcharge. These numbers were initially assigned for dial-up internet services, but now available to companies and others who charge the ‘special rate’ over and above the normal landline call rates, for the service they render through the phone. Some common uses of 0871 numbers are for event bookings, horoscope and tarot readings, making conference calls, dating and adult entertainment services, and more. Using 0871 numbers as customer service and after-sales service numbers are not allowed by the law.
While normal landline phone numbers have a specific geographic location, 0871 numbers are unassigned, meaning such numbers can originate from anywhere in UK.
Subscribers who call 0871 numbers pay 55p per minute as access charge plus up to 13p per call as service charges.
