0300 Virtual Telephone Numbers

How do 0300 numbers work?

0300 numbers are Non Geographic Numbers (NGN) and work in the same way as 08 numbers. This means they have a National presence and are not restricted to a specific location like standard 01 and 02 numbers are.

They work alongside your existing landline, and can even be attached to a mobile number.

The main difference to an 08 number is that the caller pays the same rates as when calling 01 and 02 numbers with the major benefit of counting towards any inclusive call minute packages from landlines and mobiles phones.

The 0300 range is specifically for public bodies and non-profit organisations such as charities.
