What is the meaning of 0300?
These numbers are usually reserved for non-profit organisations, charities and public support services. For this reason, 0300 numbers cost to call. The profit made by communication charges helps to pay for operator’s wages and other related overheads.
Do 0300 numbers charge you?
Many organisations use 03 numbers such as 0300, 0344 or 0345 as an alternative to more expensive 084 and 087 numbers. Calls to 03 numbers will cost no more than a call to a 01 or 02 number. This means calls to 01, 02 or 03 numbers will come out of your inclusive minutes.
Is 0300 a local call?
The important thing to note is that 0300 numbers are regulated in the same way as local numbers that start 01 or 02. It doesn’t cost you any more to call an 0300 number than an 01 or 02 number.
