While there can be some instances where having an 0800 number range isn’t beneficial, there are numerous reasons why Freephone 0800 numbers are significantly better for business than traditional landline numbers.
In July 2015 Ofcom introduced a progression of changes to the way calls to numerous 08 numbers were charged.
