How much does an 01/ 02 phone number cost?

What is an 01/ 02 number?


Newest to the non geographic prefix family are 03 numbers. These were introduced in 2007 and have since become popular with image conscious businesses.

This number range has been adopted by leading organisations and charities such as the BBC, RSPCA and DVLA.

According to Ofcom, more calls are now made from mobiles than UK landlines. Calling non geographic phone numbers from mobiles can be costly for the consumer, even free numbers such as 0800 numbers.

The unique feature of 0333 numbers is that they cost the same to call per minute as a geographic number from any UK mobile or landline, whilst retaining all the features of an 08 number. This means that when a customer contacts your business from a UK mobile phone it will still only cost as much as it would to contact you from a UK landline.

Free, quick and easy setup is available and additional features such as Time of Day Routing or Ring Groups can easily be added to your 0333 number to enhance business practices and customer service levels.
