0871 Number FAQs

Unlike 01/02 numbers, 0871 numbers aren’t connected to a particular location, and instead give you a national presence. For example, if you received a call from an 0161 number, a quick Google search would reveal you were being called from Manchester. There’s no regional presence connected to an 0843 number, which provides the owner of the number with some flexibility. It’s easy to redirect calls to a landline or mobile device and makes moving offices incredibly easy as there’s no need to update your number. 

Because 0871 numbers are usually charged slightly more than geographical (01/02) numbers, they tend to be used by services with longer hold times. These can include:

  • Information services
  • Ticketing lines
  • Travel booking lines
  • Conference dial-in services
  • Pre-sales information

The cost is made up of two components; the access charge and the service charge. The service charge varies and is set by the organisation, but has a cap of 10.83 pence per minute (excluding VAT). The access fee will also fluctuate depending on the provider of the person who is making the call. Access charges are likely to increase if the consumer is using their mobile.

A lot of numbers are sold through third parties who purchase them directly from registered providers. In order to make money from the number, they’re likely to sell it on for a premium and - as a result - you’ll be out of pocket. Telecom2 is a registered provider so you’re cutting out the middleman when you purchase numbers from us and, as a result, you’ll get the best deal when it comes to cost as well as access to great features, customer service and the option of utilising our in-house VoIP system.

Due to the non-geographic nature of an 0871 number, it gives your business a national and professional presence. One of the main benefits is the fact the number range can be used as a revenue stream for your organisation.

Yes, there are a couple of laws around the usage of these numbers. The service charge cannot be more than 10.83 pence per minute (excluding VAT), and the number range may not be used for customer service lines.
