0845 local rate numbers are now
How do we manage it?
- only one setup charge
- no monthly charge
- no annual charge
- no call charges
- no standing charges
- no other charges at all
This is right at the forefront of cost savings
made possible by de-regulation of telecommunications
Suppliers can now shop around for the best services and
prices and negotiate special deals where available.
How does it work?
We supply a non-regional 0845 local call rate number, which
you give to your customers, friends, family, use in your
advertising leaflets, letterheads, etc.
How do I receive my calls?
Calls to your 0845 number are routed instantly and invisibly
to your ordinary office or home telephone (not a mobile).
How much does the caller pay for the call?
When someone calls you on your 0845 number, they pay only
for a local rate call, no matter where they are in the
UK or where you are. Many calling packages for home and business phones now include 0845 numbers as charge free calls.
Can I keep my old number, too?
Yes, you keep your same telephone number and keep your
account with BT or whichever supplier you use. You make
your outgoing calls as usual, nothing changes. You keep
your original phone number and can continue to use it
alongside your new 0845 number. This assures continuity,
because many people will still have your old number.
Do I have to pay anything towards incoming calls
on the 0845 number?

phone account or a home phone account.
Can I use it for personal calls?
Yes, you can use it for whatever you like.
Can I use it to call home or into the office
