Networks Make Swine Flu Phone Number Exempt

Posted on August 26, 2009 @ 6:36 am

Swine flu has spead a huge amount around the world. The virus which initially broke out in Mexico is set to bite the whole world as the winter approaches. Here in the UK we have seen that swine flu has wiped out thousands of people and is set to wipe out thousands more over the next coming months. All of this has caused the UK to become the third most infected country after Mexico and the USA.

But health officials in the UK are stating that they are well aware of the situation and there is enough medicine to treat the country. But local doctors have had the most pressure, because since the global outbreak they have had nothing but calls to say people are suffering from swine flu.

This has all led to the authorities opening a fresh National Pandemic Influenza service line. The number although an 0800 number was feared to be abused by the mobile network operators. We all acknowledge that they charge immense amounts to actually ring free phone numbers and by charging to use the influenza line that could have been literally making a fortune.

But in the close common sense prevailed and all of the mobile business firm networks agreed to dispense with the charge for the flu line. It just goes to show that mobile providers could actually scrap the 0800 number in an instant, I mean with the current mobile rage they need to give back to the networks. I mean they are literally earning a fortune at any rate so why the need to keep charging the public for something that is not even indictable.

I hope the networks sort out this problem before it becomes all too late.
