If it's about VoIP, SIP or Internet Telephony but it doesn't seem to fit anywhere else, post it here.

I currently have a supplier who provides me unlimited FREE geo numbers (UK) and only changes me on a per-minute basis.
I think the costs are 1.2p to a UK landline and 1.4 to a UK mobile?
I currently have approx 7000 geo numbers with them.

My question is, does any other telecom provider offer free numbers and charge on a per-minute basis?
I have tried googling (that's how I found this forum) but they all want to charge £1 per number meaning I'm already at £7000 per month cost even before a call has been made?

Hi Tony,

Sipgate Basic are the only ITSP that I am aware of that offer free geo numbers (UK) and only charge on a per-minute basis.
Calls with them cost 1.18p/min to a UK landline and 9.90p/min to a UK mobile.

Net Telco offer free geo numbers (UK) but I don't think they offer outbound calling and there are conditions that you must adhere to.

There are many benefits in having a FREE telephone number from Net-Telco, some of which are:
  • we give you a free UK telephone number from our drop down selection above;
  • there are no setup costs;
  • there are no annual costs;
  • the only thing you pay for is the cost forwarding the call;
  • all we ask is that the number does not go for a period of more than 28 days without being called and answered.
We simply provide free telephone numbers that you can forward to a landline or mobile number. All you have to pay for is the forwarding call cost and thats at our ultra low call rates.

You can buy numbers if you want to select specific numbers or are wanting to forward to VOIP destinations, or are wanting to use our advances features (Call Announcement, Call Whisper, Voicemail, Fax2Email etc.).


I think you'd be better off making direct contact with a VoIP provider of your liking and ask them outright what your options are. Some VoIP providers heavily discount additional numbers when you have hundreds of them (let alone thousands)! Either way, be prepared to spend some £££. 😔
