Ofcom will release new 04 phone numbers. London will gain 10 million more landline phone numbers later this year.
As London expands, there is increasing demand for new phone numbers. The capital, whose dialling code is 020, currently has 30 million phone numbers allocated across the existing (020) 3, 7 and 8 ranges.
Applications will be accepted for ‘(020) 4’ numbers from 1st October, and expect the new numbers to start being allocated to customers from December 2019.
