Telephone Numbers - Physical, meet virtual
Telephone numbers are no longer fixed to physical lines and the dynamics of VoIP allows users to instantly appoint unlimited number types to suit their needs. VoiceHost can offer you a wide range of telephone numbers to give you the flexibility and presence that a fixed line service simply cannot do. Converting numbers to VoIP is easy and VoiceHost is able to port telephone numbers from most networks into the cloud.
VoiceHost offers UK wide geographic (01, 02) and non-geographic (03, 08) telephone numbers, virtual mobile (07) along with phone numbers from over 70 countries and thousands of cities internationally.
Presenting the best possible image includes getting the right phone number and is pivotal to any brand. You can create quality opportunities, generate new business or tactically target the customers you want. You'll find certain phone numbers will suit your business better than others.
VoiceHost has its own Ofcom UK telephone number allocations which means that you can choose from a large pool of numbers from around Britain including London to Glasgow and Belfast.
What are 0300 numbers? - The non-geographic 0300 dialling code was introduced by telecoms regulator Ofcom in order to allow not-for-profit organisations, charities and public bodies to offer consumers a single point of contact nationally.
An 0300 number is a special type of landline-rate phone number used by government bodies, the public sector, charities and not-for-profit organisations. Unlike traditional landline phone numbers, 0300 numbers are not linked with specific geographic locations. However, the cost to call an 0300 number within the UK is always the same as calling a normal home or business landline.
VoiceHost can provide these along with other specialist service numbering such as premium rate and revenue sharing (084, 087 and 09).
"International telephone numbers give you an instant flexible global presence"
Telephone Number Presentation or CLI Spoofing is also a service that VoiceHost can offer customers. Number presentation or CLI spoofing is the ability to manipulate the calling number display to another number, nominated or provided by the caller that can identify that caller or be used to make a return or subsequent call.
Premium rate number services 09 and revenue sharing are available on request. Please be aware of the regulation of premium number services within the United Kingdom, further details can be found on the PhonepayPlus website: www.phonepayplus.org.uk
"Number porting is a change in the CP (Communications Provider) of a telephone number. Number porting does not change the allocated RH (Range-holder) of a number, as the calls will always route through the RH systems. When a number "ports" from an analogue or digital line, the original line is ceased. This means that any and all additional services on the telephone line will also be ceased, e.g broadband. Prefixing on analogue and digital lines (ISDN) from BT happens at the exchange level."
