6 things to consider when getting a ‘comparison quote’ for your 0800 number service.

1) Are you in a current contract with your existing 0800 number supplier?
If the answer is yes then you will be required to settle any outstanding balance on your existing 0800 bill before you can move the number to a new supplier and wait until that contract ends or face termination fees.

Some suppliers will charge anywhere up to £10/month/number exclusive of minutes.
