Britain Creates New Numbers for Internet Phone Users
LONDON (Reuters) - A new batch of phone numbers will be assigned in Britain to accommodate the emerging market for cheap phone calls over the Internet, the UK's media and telecoms regulator said on Monday.
"Broadband voice services are a new and emerging market. Our first task as regulator is to keep out of the way," said Stephen Carter, Ofcom chief executive.
