0845 numbers are described as lo-call numbers. Calls to this number are charged the same for a local caller or a caller the other side of the country. Many businesses use 0845 numbers to show that they service the whole of the UK instead of just the local area.
0845 numbers are charged at just £2 per month and can be added to your account instantly via your control panel.
Of course you have full control of where the calls to these numbers are sent. For example you may wish to use the Virtual PBX system that allows you to ring a group of extensions when a number is called or just one extension. You can also use the Caller ID Rewriting to identify which of these numbers has been called!
If you would prefer a standard UK geographic number starting with '01' or '02' this is also possible. Geographic numbers are charged at only £2 per month
