Premium Rate Numbers
These premium (rate) numbers are those numbers for which the caller incurs a higher cost than that of a normal phone call in order to receive vocal information of various kinds. Our client is someone who, by responding to calls and delivering a vocal service, earns a percentage of the cost charged to the caller. Premium-rate telephone numbers are telephone numbers for telephone calls during which certain services are provided, and for which prices higher than normal are charged. Unlike a normal call, part of the call charge is paid to the service provider, thus enabling businesses to be funded via the calls. While the billing is different, calls are usually routed the same way they are for a toll-free telephone number, being anywhere despite the area code used. These telephone numbers are usually allocated from a national telephone numbering plan in such a way that they are easily distinguished from other numbers.
A premium rate number is used by companies, government agencies or other institutions to establish telephone contact with customers or anybody looking for information. Services numbers are used to offer services to example obtain information about products or services, place orders, report malfunctions or to report a complaint. The service is typically staffed with hotline employees. Smart telephone systems answer calls to the premium rate number, where applicable further define the reason for the call and then route the call to an assigned worker available to take the call. Depending on the type of service the premium rate number can be available 24 hours a day or only during certain hours.
Geographic Numbers (DIDS)
Geographic numbers (did) to be able to deliver incoming phone services of various kinds. The numbers are assigned in contiguous blocks and calls are delivered to the customer via VoIP. A geographic number is a telephone number, from a range of numbers in the United Kingdom National Telephone Numbering Plan, where part of its digit structure contains geographic significance used for routing calls to the physical location of the network termination point of the subscriber to whom the telephone number has been assigned, or where the network termination point does not relate to the geographic area code but where the tariffing remains consistent with that geographic area code.
The geographic numbers are ideal for businesses that wish to widen their marketing into neighbouring local areas or to have a local presence across the country without the need for traditional bricks and mortar premises in each town or city. The numbers are virtual telephone numbers, which means that there are no expensive line rentals or installation fees to pay. Divert the numbers to your existing landline or to your mobile, meaning that you will never need to miss a call again.
If, subject to this consultation, we go ahead with our proposals, they would mean, that: phone users in some areas would need to dial the area code when making local calls from fixed-line phones at some point in the future. This would create more numbers in the areas concerned, by allowing use of numbers in which the first digit after the area code is either ‘0’ or ‘1’; CPs would pay, initially in a pilot scheme, for geographic numbers allocated to them in area codes where there are particular concerns about scarcity. The purpose of doing this would be to increase CPs’ incentives to use geographic numbers efficiently, and hence to reduce the need to create more numbers in some areas; and we would strengthen our administrative procedures for allocating geographic numbers to CPs and for following up on their use.

Audiotex also known as audiotext is a simple voice processing technology that enables callers to automatically access pre-recorded announcements. This technology helps in providing information to a large number of callers. This voice response application allows users to enter and retrieve information via IVR method.
This voice processing application acts as a “voice bulletin board” and provides a list of information to callers, who can access the required information by entering the touch-tones or digits. Help desk outsourcing presents various menus or options to callers, and when a caller keys his/her response, by tapping or pressing the digits on his phone, a recorded announcement is played. In some cases, the term Audiotex is also used to refer to interactive voice response (IVR). However, there exists a difference between them. With Audiotex technology, each caller chooses same menu choice and hears the same message, whereas IVR provides different messages based on the information from an external computer database.

VoIP (Voice over IP) is a great technology that allows you to make free and cheap calls locally and worldwide, and gives you a handful of other benefits and improvements over traditional telephony. To be able to use VoIP, you need a VoIP service.
VoIP service is the service that you get from a company (called a VoIP service provider) that allows making and receiving VoIP calls. It is like the Internet service you get from an Internet service provider, or the phone service you get from a PSTN line telecom.
Types of VoIP Service
Depending on the way you will communicate, you need to choose which type of VoIP service suits you, among the following:
- Home phone replacement residential services.
- No-monthly-bill services.
- Software-based services.
- Mobile VoIP services.
- VoIP Services for businesses.
Hosted services are, in the most generic sense, services that are provided over the Internet. In the hosted service environment, one computer is configured to provide some or all of its resources for customer usage in exchange for a specified fee. The Internet is used to connect the server to a client machine(s), which access server data, content and services.
All hosted service types surround the basic concept of a website or web service, but they may be roughly broken down, as follows:
- Web hosting: Provides continuous, uninterrupted Internet access; a unique collection of software programs or services (like FTP and email); and an environment for working with various programming languages (like PHP, .NET and Java).
- File hosting: Hosts file storage facilities, rather than Web applications or sites. A secure file hosting service is ideal for storing files, reducing or eliminating data theft, loss or corruption.
- Image hosting: The host server stores image files or other flat files, which permits easy and scalable sharing, often in the form of a content delivery network (CDN) that optimizes delivery.
- Email hosting: Either via an outsourced server such as Microsoft Exchange or via a natively web-based email service like Gmail, Yahoo, etc.
Based on the availability of server resources and user permissions, as well as number of accounts hosted by a server, hosting may be categorized as follows:
- Shared Web hosting: One of the most popular forms of Web hosting, this is “shared” because several different Web applications are stored on a single physical server, thereby sharing available resources.
- Semi-dedicated hosting: The server is configured to host fewer website resources with more intense bandwidth.
- Dedicated hosting: Client applications do not share server resources with the applications of other users. Moreover, the server uses available bandwidth for its own performance.
- Virtual server hosting: Here, a physical server is split into various individual, virtual servers. A different OS is set up, per user requirements.
