An 0800 number is a simple way to give your business a more professional, established image and helps increase customer enquiries because they are free call from landline and mobiles phones.
0800 are one of the most popular number ranges in the UK and they are well known for being free to call. The UK does have two other free lines, 0500 and 0808; however 0800 is the most widely recognised.
Calling 0800 Numbers from mobile phones is free (as of 1st July 2015).
Due to this change by Ofcom, customers who receive calls from a mobile phone on their 0800 number will pay an additional mobile originating surcharge of 5p per minute, at all times.
We can route 0800 numbers to UK landlines, UK mobiles, VOIP numbers, Voicemail boxes, International landlines and International Mobiles. If you are looking to route to an international location it can be done, but please call us so that we can explain the costs to you in full.
The technology is more versatile than it used to be, with telecommunications features becoming more advanced. Advanced features like Interactive Voice Response (IVR) systems allow your customers to select from a range of options, so that the call can be routed more efficiently.
