How do Toll Free Numbers Work?

Virtual numbers from United World Telecom are routed via the internet. Most importantly, this means they are cloud-based and they operate digitally. You can have them connected to any other line that makes sense for you. If you want to answer calls from your number on a specific line, such as your mobile number, or your office number, you can arrange this accordingly.

A toll free number allows people to get in touch with you or your company at no charge to them. Therefore, toll free means free of charge for the caller. Hence, the owner of the number pays for the service, allowing others to reach them at no cost.
