From a SayNoTo1890.com reader, we were provided with the following snippet of an e-mail from a ComReg employee:
The Locall number we advertise is a minor source of revenue for us – the bulk comes from levies imposed on those firms we regulate.
If that’s the case, I wonder how much money other Government organisations are making from making us consumers ring them on their 1890 numbers.
I say I don’t understand this because normally businesses who have these 1890 numbers end up paying the balance of whatever the call would cost. It’s normally only 0818 numbers that a business would make money one.
