About 1300 Numbers


1300 Number Advantages:
  1. Suits Franchise operators wanting all local calls.
  2. No software or hardware required.
1300 Number Disadvantages
  1. Huge consumer resistance to paying to 35c (or more) to call a 1300 Number.
  2. Not suited to businesses wanting a national presence if its customers are calling from mobile phones and/or from well beyond their business location (non-local calls). A better solution is a true "Toll-Free" 1800 number for the same price.
