BT Directory Listing Changes
Currently, all telephone numbers are entitled to one free listing in the BT Local Phone Book. Additional Entries in other locations or Special Phone Book Entries (Ordinary, Bold and Super Bold) are chargeable.
We’ve recently received notification from BT Directory Solutions that as of 1st January 2023, BT will be removing the Free of Charge Business listings published in the Standard Phone Book Print, A to Z Business Listings section.
This means that Phone Books published after 1st January 2023 will only contain residential building and paid-for business listings.
|Phone Book Listing and Section||Entitlement & Price||New Entitlement Changes|
|Classified – Business Listings by Trade Type e.g. Joe Bloggs Plummer||Chargeable print ads and classified lineage as per the Special Phone Book Entry Pricing||No Change – Chargeable print ads and classified lineage as per the Special Phone Book Entry Pricing|
|Residential A – Z||Free of Charge||No Change – Free of Charge|
|Business A -Z||Free of Charge or Special Phone Book Entry or Additional||Change – Free listing will be remove and no charges will be incurred No Change – Special Phone Book Entry or Additional charges apply (if previously applied)|
As per the above table, any currently chargeable Additional or Special Phone Book Entries will remain unaffected.
Please note that business listings will still have a free of charge listing but the FOC business entry will be detailed in a separate supplement which is available on request, detailing free of charge business A to Z Listings. The phonebook will only contain residential and paid for business listings.
