Our Mission

Help businesses expand globally with our simple and localized telecom solutions.

Global Call Forwarding is a cloud phone service provider offering international phone numbers, international call forwarding, and advanced call management features. Our voice service is designed to help your business connect with local and global customers efficiently and cost-effectively.

Our Story

In 1996, United World Telecom (UWT) started as a callback service provider in Florida, US. With a growing customer portfolio and increased demand, UWT transitioned to being a call forwarding service provider over time. We then established Global Call Forwarding (GCF) in 2007 as a distinctive brand dedicated to providing international toll free and local numbers.

Since then, we have grown with global and diverse teams, thousands of multinational customers, and expanded our operations to the APAC region with an office and dedicated staff located in Bangkok, Thailand and a new POP in Singapore. With over twenty-five plus years of experience, we have close partnerships with reputable service providers around the globe. This ensures we provide the highest service quality and reliability to our customers.

Now, Global Call Forwarding is a leading provider of local and international toll free numbers. With our extensive global network of partners, we have access to the largest inventory of local and toll free numbers in the world. This lets us provide businesses with phone numbers that are unique to a specific country or region so they can establish a local presence anywhere in the world.
