There are a range of NGN’s to choose from, including;

Freephone (0800 or 0808) – Your customer calls you for free and you pay for the call. Great for sales driven organisations.

Local Rate (0845) – You pay nothing – your customer pays the same Local Rate from anywhere within the UK.

Local Special Rate (0844) – These give you the opportunity to generate revenue while still keeping the call cost fairly low for the caller. Rate range from 1p/min to 5p/min and the rebates reflect that.

National Special Rate (0871) – as with 0870 numbers you receive a rebate.  This number costs the caller considerably more and is often used for services such as IT Support lines.

Out of Area Numbers – a Business based in Brighton can have a local presence in other towns all over the UK.  We supply you with a telephone number local to the area you would like to attract business from. Calls to this number are seamlessly forwarded to your actual office. For example, if you were based in Oxford, and wished to attract new business from Brighton, we would supply you with an 01273 number.

Golden Numbers

If you are looking for a particularly memorable number we can provide Golden Numbers. 

These start from £500 and can be as much as £2500 subject to the quality of the number.
