Phone Numbers

What is a geographic number?

Geographic numbers are phone numbers that are specifically assigned to a city or town. In the UK, these numbers begin with the digits 01 and 02. London numbers for example begin with the digits 020 while numbers for the city of Manchester start 0161. Geographical phone numbers are favoured by businesses and SMEs who require a local area presence.


How much does it cost to call a geographic number?


If in the UK, calls to 01 and 02 geographic phone numbers will bear the same cost as a local rate call. Depending on your provider, local rate calls may be included in your monthly plan.
