NI Phone numbers start 028 – they only changed 10 years ago…

I’m about to start doing some telephoning – but it seems that a certain organisation for whom I will be telephoning does not seem to understand that telephone numbers in Northern Ireland are eight digits long with a three-digit STD number. Therefore they should be displayed as

(028) 1234 5678

not

(281) 234-5678

It’s not as if this has changed in recent months – they changed on 22 April 2000 as part of the Big Number changes when London numbers changed to

(020) 7123 4567 – Inner London

0r

(020) 8123 4567 – Outer London

Not looking forward to having to explain this to volunteers.
