The 0800 number is always 11 digits long, in the following format: 0800 XXX XXXX. These numbers can receive calls from both landline and mobile phones.
Having a 0800 number means being accessible anywhere in the UK, for free. Calls made to this national number can be connected directly to your company as you prefer: via Virtual PABX, IP PABX, Analog PABX or directly to your preferred number.
