I can answer this for Magrathea - we are simply offering to terminate 0800 (and
0808 and 0500 and 00800 incidently) without a requirement to register with us.
Yes we do earn a very small amount of transit revenue, but only in exactly the
same way that Orange, or Virgin Media do when you make an 0800 call from their
lines. We do not terminate directly, and the calls pass through BT as usual. I
can't possibily see how you could suggest that this is fraud!
We only provide a general entry for +44800 which can be overridden by longer
If you are unable to add a longer, specific entry into e164.org that's not our
fault - and you need to contact them and ask them why, you are probably doing
something wrong. Have you tried to make an entry for a geographic number? Did
