When to choose toll-free or local numbers

Toll-free numbers allow callers to dial-in without accruing long-distance charges. But the economics of telephone services have changed significantly in recent years. Many mobile phone providers and telephone carriers now offer unlimited national calling plans, so offering toll-free numbers may be less necessary. You choose which option will work best for you and your callers.

What’s the difference between toll-free and local numbers?

A toll-free number includes any numbers with prefix; 800, 888, 877 and now 866 or 855. The cost for toll-free conferencing numbers are always billed to the host at per minute / per caller rates. A local number has a regular area-code and can cause the caller to incur long-distance fees as determined by their own long-distance telephone service plan.
