This may have already been done, so sorry if it has.
A few years ago I had a few 0870 numbers for various purposes. They were free to me because the company that set them up would just take a slice of the revenue from the call costs, with the lion's share going to BT.
I'm surprised to see so few hosting companies offer a service where clients can call this 0870 number for a quick update on server status or technical problems or even just to catch the latest about the hosting company. These numbers are free and you just dump a quick recording as and when. This to me would be invaluable as a lot of the time I don't want to raise a support request or spend time trawling support pages - I just want to make a quick call to know that everything is OK, or if its not OK when it is expected to be OK again.
If you are good enough to have one of these numbers can you firstly let me know if you do reseller accounts as I am looking to transfer to such a company where updates on situations is good. Can you also tell me who is good to get these numbers off at the moment?

Is this a hosting request? If you want I can move this post to
the Web Hosting Request forum!

Sorry, I didn't mean for it to be a hosting request.
It's just that I'm in a bit of a mood because 1000RPM have been down for 36 hours and counting!
One of the first things I will do before offering packages to my clients is to set up an 0870 status update number. If this was provided to me then I would be very happy.
Thanks for the names of a couple of companies. Does anybody know of any particuarly good ones from their experience?

kall8.com is pretty much well known as the most widely used and the best I believe.
