Virtual Landline Phone Numbers

Get a business presence in another city by using one or more of our virtual landlines

What are Virtual Numbers?

Virtual telephone numbers, otherwise known as local number, ghost numbers or virtual landline numbers, have a wide range of benefits that can improve first impressions and reputation of your company with ease.

When a customer calls your virtual phone number, their call can be diverted to a landline number or mobile, giving your business a local presence in the city of your choice.

By having a virtual landline it gives the impression to your customers that you have an office in their locality, or even multiple offices nationwide. This can build customer trust and enhance reputability without the costs of opening up new office locations.

We can even let you know which virtual office they are calling when you answer the phone. Enjoy all these call solutions when you subscribe to our bundles.
