UK phone numbers are cloud-based phone numbers that start with the country code +44, followed by an area code. UK numbers appear more familiar to British people, encouraging them to reach out to your business. British people are less likely to dial international numbers, but if they see a local UK number, they are more inclined to call your business and answer incoming calls.

Because the UK economy is largely built on the service industry, communication plays a vital role for any business hoping to offer its services there. One of the best ways to ignite communication is by providing a UK VoIP number for customers.

Virtual phone numbers can be geographic, non-geographic, mobile, or toll-free. They are easy to manage with minimum effort.
