Make and receive free calls over the internet with a Net-Telco 056 VoIP number

In exactly the same manner as 07 numbers are assigned to mobile phones and 01, 02 numbers are assigned to UK Geographic phones; 056 numbers are those that are assigned to VoIP phones. 056 numbers are non-geographic numbers for Internet based telephone communications. Anyone can call your 056 VoIP number at the same cost as calling a standard UK 01 or 02 land line number. An 056 number is perfect if you want to save money by using VoIP without fixing your contact number to a specific geographic location.


WHAT IS VOIP?

The difference between VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) services and traditional phone services is that VoIP voice calls and messaging services are provided over a broadband internet connection rather than over traditional telephone networks. It works in much the same way as a traditional phone system - you can call and be called from any number as normal - the main difference is that with VoIP, you have no line rental to pay and benefit from lower call costs as you are using the Internet to make and receive calls.


HOW DO I USE VOIP

To use a VoIP service, you use a broadband Internet connection and some specialist equipment. This equipment could be either:

1. a personal computer installed with relevant software, such as Free Word Dialup
2. a traditional telephone handset with an adaptor that plugs into the broadband connection, or
3. a wireless device with suitable software installed on it.


WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE BENEFITS OF VOIP?

1. You need a number. To get a 100% FREE 056 number, see below (How can I buy an 056 number).
2. Forward the number to your existing VoIP service provider.
3. Start using the internet to receive FREE phone calls (all 056 to VoIP calls are FREE).
