Call Types

Call Types

Freefone 1800

This is free to the caller regardless of whether they ring from a landline or from a mobile. The cost of the call is borne completely by the business providing the number. The cost of calls from mobiles is particularly high so this would not be recommended for businesses with a calling profile of mainly mobile.

Callsave 1850

The cost of the call is shared between the caller and the business providing the number. The caller pays a flat per call charge and the receiver pays for the call duration after an initial free seconds allowance has elapsed. Calls from mobiles are again charged at a higher rate than fixed line calls.

LoCall 1890

The cost to the caller is the same as a local call. The receiver is charged per call, regardless of duration. This is attractive for businesses with a high average call duration as they only incur a flat cost per call from fixed lines. Calls from mobiles still attract a cent per minute charge, however, it is still lower than the charge to 1800 or 1850.

International Freefone services

For global companies with a multinational presence we also offer a wide range of Freefone numbers from an extensive list of international locations. Powerful call routing technology, handles calls based on business rules you define, ensuring your callers are directed to the part of your business best suited to deal with their enquiry. Improve customer service for your clients worldwide, centralise your administrative functions and reduce costs all with eir’s International Freefone services.
