Directory enquiries uk residential

An opening scene depicts a 118 24 7 call advisor as an angel ready to help consumers at a call centre in heaven. The ad also depicts a new service - 118 24 7 TextBack- whereby consumers can text their particular request for business information and quickly receive a text in response.
The TV campaign broke on March 20 and will run for a month, with two 10 second variants running for a further two months to the end of May across major terrestrial, satellite and cable channels.
Since deregulation of the UK's 192 directory enquiry service in 2003, 118 24 7 has established itself as one of the principal 118 providers in terms of service quality and brand.
118 24 7 is a telephone-based information service that provides in-depth, up-to-date classified business information, business and residential listings, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 118 24 7 is provided by Yell, a leading international directories business operating in classified advertising markets in the UK, US, Spain and Latin America through printed, online and telephone-based media.

A few weeks back I suddenly had an epiphany that my 5 year old son would be really impressed by a potato battery! Last nights effort was a malt vinegar and salt solution, some zinc plated screws and some copper plumbing scraps I found in my garage. Now that the ‘Great British Bake Off’ is in full swing and even providing some unexpected drama, I thought I’d tell you about some South African culinary delights. Potjiekos – this basically means pot food, and is a variety of stews , soups and curries made in a potjie (similar to dutch oven) over a fire. Boerewors – this means farm sausage and is a spicy beef sausage often cooked on a braai (BBQ) and served in a bread roll with Mrs Balls chutney (available from some major supermarkets). Umgqusho  (samp and beans) – this is a Xhosa dish which contains a corn product (samp) mixed with various beans, onions and garlic. Peppermint Crisp Tart – a heavenly no cook pudding that simply involves mixing cream, caramel condensed milk and peppermint crisp chocolates, then layer it with tennis biscuits. Skottle – a cooking device which is like a giant wok, great for cooking breakfasts while camping!
After my relative success predicting the world cup earlier this year, I thought I’d have a go at predicting the premier league season which starts on 16th August. Historically recently promoted sides usually battle to stay up but I’m really hoping Burnley do, they achieve so much without buying success. Another recently promoted side, but I think they have the same problem as Burnley not enough players with proven premier league experience.
I think Hull will probably make it into the Europa league but these extra fixtures may prove to be too much of a strain to get enough results in the premier league. My least favourite team should be much better under new management and much fewer fixtures than their rivals. I try to be objective but there is no way I can have Manchester United finishing higher than my favourite club Liverpool, they almost won it last year but I think it will take a season to rebuild after losing their top scorer Suarez.
They have enough depth in their squad to handle the fixtures and they have a few game winners like Aguero and Toure. Another team with a lot of depth in their squad, but I think their manager is slightly better.
The 2014 world cup will soon be upon us and while some people are very excited by the prospect, others will not be bothered at all.
However, for those of you who are interested in football, here are my ramblings on the countries taking part in the world cup. Player(s) to watch: Vincent Kompany arguably one of the world’s best defenders and Eden Hazard an exciting attacking player. Player(s) to watch: Asmir Begovic one of the premier league’s best keepers and Edin Dzeko a super sub striker for Manchester City.


Player(s) to watch: Again practically the whole team, but my personal favourites are Neymar, Ramires and Oscar. Interesting fact(s): Cameroon is the first African country to reach a quarter final in a world cup.
Interesting fact(s): One of the longest north-south trending countries in the world at over 4,600km and, only 150km wide from west to east.
Interesting fact(s): Colombia is a land of extremes, with snow-covered volcanoes, rain forest and deserts.
Player(s) to watch: Keylor Navas is one of the top keepers in the Spanish league, which is good because he will be busy! Player(s) to watch: Yaya Toure who’s been on fire in the premiership this season and his brother Kolo Toure who has also provided some entertainment of another sort (quite a few own goals). Interesting fact(s): Dalmation dogs got their name after a South Coastal region in Croatia called Dalmatia. Interesting fact(s): English computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee is credited with inventing the World Wide Web.
Player(s) to watch: Quite a few good players but Franck Ribery and Karim Benzema stand out. Player(s) to watch: Practically the whole team, but Manuel Neuer and Bastian Schweinsteiger stand out. Player(s) to watch: Orestis Karnezis a sound goal keeper and Kostas Mitroglou a powerful forward. Interesting fact(s): Platano forest was nominated as one of the new Seven Wonders of the World.
Player(s) to watch: Carlo Costly a tall striker who uses his strength and aerial prowess to good effect. Interesting fact(s): Couples that want a marriage license are required to attend an hour long lecture on contraception. Interesting fact(s): Vatican City and San Marino are very small independent states located inside Italy. Player(s) to watch: Adrea Pirlo the maestro and Gianluigi Buffon one of the best keepers in the world. Interesting fact(s): The taxis are colour coded, white or grey are more basic than black cabs. Interesting fact(s): The Portuguese eat more fish and shell fish per head than any other country. Interesting fact(s): Besides good footballers, Spain produces a large amount of renewable energy including wind power and solar power.
Player(s) to watch: Just about the whole team, but my favourite is Andres Iniesta mostly because of the resemblance with my brother. Interesting fact(s): Swiss women are among the oldest in europe when they have their first child. Almost a year after the deregulation of directory enquiries, there are calls for the telecoms regulator to step in and simplify the bewildering choice of numbers and charges that customers now face.
Early predictions that the market would consolidate to a handful of big players are proving wrong, with new providers still opening for business, raising the number of active 118 numbers to over 120. The new companies range from the high profile 118 118, with its controversial advertising campaign featuring moustachioed 70s style runners, to tiny operators like Gay-Lo Directories, 118 453, which operates from a hut behind the reception area of a kennels near Windsor.
And despite, or perhaps because of, the rise in the number of providers, customers have deserted in droves. Research by the 118 Tracker organisation suggests that the number of calls to directory enquiries has fallen by about half since deregulation. Now Brian Cottle MP, Liberal Democrat trade and industry spokesperson, is calling on Ofcom, the regulator, to step in and simplify the system for customers by providing better information about the different services.


A directory enquiries service has operated since the first telephone exchange was opened in 1879. But 192 was a monopoly, and three years ago, with the encouragement of the European Union, the then telecoms regulator Oftel decided Britain should change to a competitive directory enquiries market.
In the early days of the deregulated market, at the end of 2002, 118 services were beset by problems, with complaints about the quality of service. Another problem is that the majority of UK phone numbers are now either mobile numbers or ex-directory, and so aren't actually available to the 118 providers. Critics of deregulation say the market is not working because the public remembers the numbers which have been most heavily advertised, and they tend to be the more expensive services. The Number 118 118, for instance has an initial charge of 49p with a per minute charge after that, compared with the 192 cost of 40p. Investment is being made in technology that will enable the caller to ask for a range of general information from cinema listings, to hotel star ratings, to where your nearest cash machine may be.
Ofcom, the regulator, is conducting research into the 118 industry, which it expects to complete in the coming weeks.
Last Sunday, 65 participants of all ages descended on London Academy to compete in the Maccabi GB National Table Tennis Championships 2015.
The commercial was produced through Tomboy Films which represents Jonti's work for commercials. More than just a number, 118 24 7 provides essential business information such as opening hours, location details, prices and special offers or even film times and summaries*. So after a few failed attempts, last night I finally got a working electrolyte battery to power a clock. I connected 2 ramekins of the vinegar solution (about 100ml in each) in series which gave me enough volts to power the clock.
If you are interested in making this there are plenty of south African shops to buy genuine ingredients or you can do it with mint aero and an alternative biscuit (probably hobnobs, but I have never tried). That said I just can’t see it happening, purely because they don’t have the resources.  Jamie our office Burnley fan is not going to be happy with this prediction.
For those not bothered about football you can look forward to some good movies coming out like 22 Jump Street and Transformers: Age of Extinction. Australia has a lot of venomous creatures like the fierce snake and funnel web spider, though as a South African I’m more afraid of a Black mamba or a Boomslang! Although, by all accounts, the chances of getting the right number have since improved, it is still difficult to know what you are being charged, with calls from mobile networks sometimes costing double. The rise in the use of mobiles, which store numbers, and free internet searches for numbers, have provided callers with alternatives to calling 118. The vision is to become general information providers, able to answer any number of everyday questions. Matt Peacock, Ofcom's Director of Communications promises that if their research reveals that the market is not working, they will step in to change the rules, and improve the service for customers.
If you are a gamer – we have quite a few in our office – you may be keen on trying the new games coming out like EA Sports UFC which features Bruce Lee! This in turn gave way to a computer system in 1984 when the modern 192 directory enquiry service was born. They are already offering new features such as the texting of numbers and call connection, and they say this is just the beginning.
