One of the most widely used and most recognisable telephone code in the UK must be the 0800 Freephone number – which needs a very little introduction! The freephone number holder pays a small pence-per-minute charge for receiving incoming calls, which is typically about 3p per minute.
Whilst many telephone codes have undergone a change of some sort in the past the 0800 Freephone number has remained consistent since it was first launched over 30 years ago.
0800 Freephone numbers are once again finding popularity amongst savvy business users. alphaTALK’s 0800 Freephone service can now allow number holders to do much more with these numbers than they were previously able to.
One of the biggest advantages is the ability to connect the number onto a Hosted PBX and use it in conjunction with that service. This will allow the number holder to reduce their call costs significantly on any incoming calls on 0800 Freephone numbers.
A freephone number or toll-free number is a telephone number that is billed for all arriving calls instead of incurring charges to the originating telephone subscriber. For the calling party, a call to a toll-free number from a landline is free of charge. We at alphaTALK are aware that when you’re starting your new business, there’s a lot to think about, and perhaps the type of telephone number to use is not at the top of your priority list. However, it is an important decision that could have an enduring effect on how your potential customers view your business.
Whilst alphaTALK can provide almost any number type you can imagine such as:
– 0300 Numbers for Charities
– 0330 Numbers for Business
– 0800 & 0808 Freephone Numbers
The features of toll-free services have evolved as telephone networks have moved from electromechanical call switching to fully computerized stored program controlled networks.
