The first thing I thought of when thinking and brainstorming about this particular topic is this: what is a 0845 number anyway?Usually not a good sign when trying to write up something to enrich others with knowledge of the world as we know it. The good thing, though, is that the answer to that question – or rather why I even ask such a question – is quite easy. This type of number exists only in Great Britain. I’m from the United States.
A Lowdown on the 0845 Number
0845 numbers are basically local rate numbers used in the UK at around 3 U.S. cents per minute. I use the cents over the pences (the British version of the coin) for purposes of understanding, of course.
But the great thing to understand about the cost of 0845 numbers is that it’s a national rate, not just a local or regional rate. If you own a 0845 number, you can utilize that number anywhere in the UK, and that number can be routed to another number, say, your cell phone number. Anyone and anywhere in the UK can call you on the line, and it’ll only cost 3 cents per minute.
Obviously, from a business and marketing standpoint, that 0845 number’s pretty beneficial. It does save you some money. No matter your location, it’ll still cost you the same. Think of it as a static charge. Just remember, though: the caller has to be located somewhere in the United Kingdom. This falls in line with the fact that you may need to have specific clientele located in the UK. Otherwise, a 0845 number would be pretty useless. It only benefits callers from Great Britain, basically.
