0844, 0845, 0870, 0871 Telephone Numbers
0844, 0845, 0870 & 0871 are also known as non geographic numbers, or NGN’s, and are not attached to any geographical area in the UK.
Instead, they can be pointed to any existing landline or mobile number in UK and even routed internationally. This is possible because they have prefix which does not belong to a specific geographical destination of the call. They have gained significant importance among large and small businesses, as they offer a wide range of facilities which include:
- Route incoming calls to any telephone number worldwide
- Take your number with you if you move premises
- Promote a UK wide business image
- Earn a small commission on certain 087 numbers
- Business continuity in the event of a disaster
How much does it cost ?
We don’t charge you a single penny to set up or rent any of our 08 numbers. And unlike 0800 and 0808 numbers your business wont get charged for receiving an incoming call. The inbound caller will be charged between 4 and 10 pence per minute when calling your NGN number depending on the tariff that you choose. The more the inbound caller pays for the call the more you can expect to earn in commission.
