URGENT change of access number for the OpenTAP gateway

Notice Released: July 1st, 2020

It is with much regret, the supplier of our premium access number 09117329997 has made a decision that they no longer want to provide premium 09 services and after much discussion with them, they seem disinterested in the critical importance of the OpenTAP service or helping us by keeping the line active.

It has only been 2 years since Ofcom changed the regulations on the 070 numbers which forced us to change to an 09 premium number and we know how frustrating this must be, not only for the users of OpenTAP but ourselves included.

However, through one of our other providers, they have provided us with an 076 mobile pager number and a new 09 premium number. They have assured us that they have no plans to discontinue their pager and premium line services.

So the long and short of it is…

You have up to 90 days’ notice to change the access number in your alarm systems and other TAP to SMS gateway compatible devices from 09117329997 to either 07640177177 (intl.+447640177177) or 09018600011 (calls cost 35p per call plus your network provider access charge).

The old access number 09117329997 will be disconnected on September 30th, 2020. Please make sure you have updated your devices before this date. 

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
