0800 Virtual Telephone Number

These are freephone numbers, with no cost to the caller however, mobile operators generally apply a charge. You simply pay a fixed price per minute for each call you receive. As it’s free for the caller, it’s very effective at encouraging customers to respond to your advertising.

0845 Local Virtual Telephone Number

This represents a local rate number, which costs the caller the same as a local rate phone call; typically 3p – 4p a minute. Knowing they’ll only pay the local rate encourages callers to phone you, whether it’s for information, service or sales.

0843 / 0844 Lo-Call Virtual Telephone Number

These number ranges are by far the most popular in the UK today and are charged to the caller at a rate of between 1 and 5 pence per minute, with 5 pence ranges being more commonly used. Revenue share is payable on incoming call traffic.

0871 Virtual Telephone Number

This is also a national rate number, which can be charged at up to 10p a minute, giving you the ability to generate more income. In the same way as 0870 numbers you will receive a rebate for every call you receive. In the case of 0871 the cost to the dialling party is slightly higher, meaning the revenue share paid to you is also increased. You can have any number of Non Geographic Numbers on one phone line – useful, for example if you’ve run the same advertisement in different publications with different Non Geographic Numbers, and want to measure the response per publication.
