Purchase An 03 Number
0845 was introduced as a Lo-Call number as callers were charged at local rates (when called from landlines) no matter where they are. Unfortunately, there is no longer a different charge for local and national calls to ordinary geographic numbers so the marketing distinction has mostly been lost.
They are, however, slightly cheaper to call than geographic numbers from landlines.
Calls to these numbers are not included in mobiles inclusive calling minutes and are charged at various rates, always more than a national call. They are often not dial-able from abroad.
What Is A 0845 Non-Geo Number
For only £2 per month you can choose to have a local rate 0845 number. This allows people to call you from landlines at local call rates no matter where they are in the UK.
Calls to your 0845 number from other Voipfone customers are free.
0845 numbers are normally used to provide a friendly, low cost access number for your customers and can be used regularly for your company's main number or one-off for sales promotions etc.
(note: calls to 0845 numbers from mobiles are charged at differing rates by Cellular Service Providers)
Generally, we feel that a normal 01 or 02 number is a better choice, but if a non-geographic number is what you need, consider 03 also.
