Plusnet Telephone numbers starting 08, 09 and 118 are called 'service numbers'. You might use them to make phone calls to organisations such as banks, travel services, government departments, or even to vote in TV shows. From 1 July 2015, the regulator Ofcom is changing the way these numbers are charged for. The changes are designed to make the cost of calls clearer, and they are being communicated through a campaign called UK Calling.

Will Black Friday / Cyber Monday become the new Boxing Day Sale? Black Friday - the retail sales that occur on the Friday after Thanksgiving—used to be an American tradition, until now. This year, the day of sales arrived in the UK. UK based internet searches for “Black Friday” were up by 355% in 2013 and look to be even higher this year. This ever increasing online popularity of Black Friday has led to a large number of online retailers in the UK offering Black Friday deals.
