When you sign up with Voipfone you automatically receive a free 056 telephone number which can be called by anyone anywhere.
The 056 number ranges form part of the New Voice Service (NVS). This has the format 056 xxxx xxxx. This is a new number range specifically for Internet Telephone companies. Like the Voipfone numbers, calls between 056 numbers are free but unlike them, they can be dialled from any telephone anywhere.
When someone calls a 056 number from the UK using an ordinary telephone, the caller will be charged at the NVS call rate.
When they are called from outside the UK they are charged standard international rates.
These numbers are very new and you may occasionally find that calls from some telephone operators in the UK or abroad may not connect.
New technology can seem confusing at first, but don't worry, we are here to help!
