Home to City Hall, Belfast is Ireland's financial and commercial hub. Many UK based and international business take advantage of purchasing a Belfast local number to benefit from the influx of new business they receive through joint ventures, as well as consumers directly. An 02890 virtual number will be linked to your current telephone number, regardless of where you are located. Calls will automatically divert to one of the numbers you select, without your clients or business associates noticing any type of delay or call transfer. An 02890 number will enable you to effectively target the local Belfast market, no matter what industry you are operating in.   

  • Consumers are far more likely to buy from a local Belfast based business, rather than one located in the UK.  
  • Supercharge local advertising and lead generation by giving potential customers a local number to contact you on.           
  • Calling an 02890 number is free for many, as it counts as a standard landline included in their monthly minutes package.  
  • 02890 numbers mean that being based in England or even another country is not an issue, as you will still appear to be based in Belfast.       
  • No expensive or specific equipment is required to operate an 02890 number.
