What will this service cost me?
We guarantee that if you are a UK business that directs your 084 SwitchboardFREE number to a
UK landline, then this will be of no cost to you. You can keep and use the number for as long
as you like and you'll not be charged and you will not receive any bills.
How can you offer this service for free?
25,000 registered business users in the UK use our service and 084 numbers generate a small revenue
when called. We use this revenue to offer you a fully featured and supported, professional business
class product at no cost to you.
How much does it cost my clients to call an 084 number then?
To call an 084 number nationally, at any time of the day or night from a UK landline costs 4.2 pence
per minute plus VAT. This is classed as a ‘low call rate’.
Calls from a mobile phone vary depending on your individual tariff and provider but typically calls
from a mobile will cost around 20 pence per minute.*

Is there a minimum amount of calls I need to keep my number?
If you're not ready to use your number or there's a delay in advertising your number, all you need to
do is make one call to your 084, once a month to keep the number open. If no calls are taken for 60
days we will reclaim the number, but don't worry; we'll email you if you forget.
Do I get a restricted service with the free account then?

perhaps a golden number but our standard features are all our features:
Cost of first two numbers
