Switch Telecom’s Toll Free Telephone Numbers

A toll free telephone number is a telephone number with an 0800 prefix that is billed for all incoming calls, instead of incurring charges to the originating telephone subscriber.  The charge for using a toll free phone number is paid for by the called party instead of the calling party.  For the calling party, a call to an 0800 number from a landline or mobile is free of charge.

Your customers might not be enjoying the benefits of Switch Telecom’s low local, national and mobile rates and might still be paying high rates to their mobile or fixed line provider; it is for this reason that a Switch Telecom 0800 number could be an indispensable asset to your business.  Furthermore, customers recognize “0800” numbers as being free of charge, which no doubt has a positive impact on whether or not they’re going to call your business.  Moreover a toll-free number can help you to brand your business.

All you need is a reliable internet connection and a Switch Telecom VoIP Trunk plus Hosted Switchboard or a Switch Telecom VoIP Trunk connected to your existing VoIP PBX.
