Depending on the availability of the number you want, you could even have your new number all set up within a day!
The Australian government oversees the use of 1800 numbers through the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA). In buying an 1800 number, your business secures the right to use that number. To retain your 1800 smartnumber, you must activate it within three years from date of purchase. If you do not activate your number, it will be returned to ACMA’s pool of numbers.
Different call plans have different call rates, routing options, and other features. Basic plans start as low as $19 + GST per month, with basic routing options and monthly inbound call reports. Changing and customising plans is easy—so choose any plan that suits your business’s needs and rest assured that you can scale your 1800 number over time.
You can broaden your options further by combining an 1800 number with other compatible services. For example, you could use a voice prompt menu to manage incoming calls or get a live answering service to assist with overflow calls.
