Ofcom rings the changes with new London code - vnunet.com

London's getting a new phone number, the old inner London (020 7) and outer London (020 8) snobbery will have to go - there's a new kid in town and that's "3" (or really 020 3). Hopefully no relation to the 3G network of the same name.

Ofcom is releasing the number after June 1st, both for businesses and home users.

Though no existing users have to change, it's likely some will, and there'll be confusion as to what 020 3 means. So much so that Ofcom are featuring 4,000 adverts on the London Underground and leafleting public buildings.

020 3 will also different in that they will not reflect geographic location. This will allow another 10 million London numbers.
