If your 0845 number is ordered before mid-day, it should be made live the same day. Otherwise it’s the next working day. We take time to ensure your 0845 number is connected correctly, so would rather take the extra few hours to make sure you have the access you need than rush your 0845 order through. We also strongly advise that you do not, publish, market or disclose your 0845 number until it has been confirmed as live.
0845 numbers were introduced to the UK as a shared cost number. Traditionally the caller would pay 3.36 pence, ultimately reducing their call costs, and the company would pay 3.36 pence per minute, sharing the cost of the call.
As the cost to make local & national geographical calls has reduced, so has the shared call cost, to the point where businesses could make a small revenue generation from inbound calls at peak times. This has since dropped in 2011 when BT launched their free calls to 0845 numbers tariff, which resulted in the drop in the interconnect between carriers.
0845 numbers are still perhaps the most recognised NGN in the UK today. However as the inter-connect payment between carriers is reduced further, it is looking likely that businesses may have to start paying to receive their calls again
0845 numbers can be pointed to a mobile, and to an international destination. However make note, that doing this will add an additional cost to your business to receive calls. You may want to look at a higher cost number such as 0871 to do this, which can absorb the diversion leg within the rebate. We can confirm what the cost would be by e-mailing; [email protected] or calling us on; 0844 324 8575
