There are many posts about area codes, but I can’t seem to find an answer to this query.
I’ve searched online to find a list of area codes and related post codes, and the area code I have which is on my billing does not match my postcode. Going by the third party list that is, as I realise there isn’t a definitive list posted by VM (that I can find anyway) online.
Please can someone confirm S43? The code I have apparently is for Doncaster and I’m nowhere near there!
Thanks Gareth_L. That would make sense, and interesting info. The third party lists online aren’t completely accurate by the sounds then.
It also confused me that my location (as far as Google is concerned) is easily ten miles away from my location. With the area code being 30 miles different, I was concerned. I’ve not come across this before. I’d have expected the location on my devices through the Wi-Fi to be my actual location based on the ip address from my property. That said, I don’t understand this as much as I’d like. I’ve had broadband hacked in the past, so I’m really making sure what I’m getting is correct.
As a side, does messing with the dns setting help security. Though I don’t know enough about this. I should really post that separately, my apologies.
Many thanks for your time to respond and all the info I’ve received so far. It is much appreciated.
