0800 Freephone Numbers

So what specifically are these 0800 Freephone Numbers anyway?

They are virtual national phone numbers, so they are not assigned to any physical location - true of all 08 or 03 numbers. 0800 & 0808 are also the only two national dialling codes that are totally free to dial from a UK landline or UK mobile.

How much do 0800 Freephone Numbers calls cost to Operate?

Our 080 rates start at 3.5 pence/minute with no rental per number per month nor do we charge any set-up fees unless gold numbers are purchased. We can usually reduce based on delivering calls to UK landlines, that is the only charge usually with no additional rental per number and lots of free call handling features too.

Basically why is there a cost to Operate an 0800 Phone Number

It costs around 6p/minute to run operate a free phone number, the owner pays for the call, the idea is then that the caller does not have too.
