We provide a vast array of non-geographic telephone numbers (NGNs) and SMS short codes suitable for every need. Below is a guide to the numbers available and some examples of typical projects they may be used for.
Freephone Telephone Numbers
0800 & 0808
Ideal for sales lines. Let your customers contact you free of charge from a UK landline. Beware these numbers are not free of charge from mobiles, so you may like to offer a mobile alternative, like an 03 (see below).
Flat Rate Telephone Numbers
0844 & 0843
Perfect for customer service lines and technical support. Caller pays 5 pence per minute at all times. We either provide the numbers to you for free, or with a rebate depending on your volumes.
Lo-Call Rate Telephone Numbers
Variable lo-call rate to the caller. Low cost to our customers. Give your business a national identity with a locally charged number. Common with customer service lines.
Geographic Network Telephone Numbers
01 & 02
A great choice for multi-sited companies and to give your company a local feel. IP3 can provide all regional codes across the UK. These numbers are also cheap for your customers to call from their mobiles, and often included in any free minute packages they have with their provider.
UK Wide Non-Geographic Telephone Numbers
03 & 030
Same cost to the caller as a geographic number (01/02) but is included in mobile & tariff minutes. Perfect replacement for an 08 number where more calls are received from mobile numbers.
