Telecoms company publishes complete junk in place of UK area code list.

I couldn’t believe my eyes!

Here’s a telecoms company that’s so cheapskate they scanned a printed UK area code list from more than a decade ago and put it online without bothering to check it for OCR errors:

The list includes such interesting and unknown UK place names as…

Darwen

Stourbridge (sn 6d)

Stocke -on-tren

Dumbartor

Suthend-on-sea

Menthyr Tydfil

…and many others.

With this much attention to detail, imagine the level of service you’d get were you one of their paying customers!

P.S. (August 2011) As recently mentioned by the marvellous people over at sayNOto0870.com here’s a UK area code list with no errors: http://www.telephonenumbers.co.uk/Geographic-Codes/i=2
