A toll-free number is a special telephone that enables callers to reach a business or individual without being charged for the call. The toll-free subscriber pays for the incoming calls. If you’re interested in a toll-free number, please keep the following facts in mind:
Toll-free numbers forward to one assigned phone number.
Toll-free numbers are unpublished by default. You can add your toll-free number to your telephone directory listing for an additional monthly fee.
Telephone numbers can be ported from other providers.
New host telephone numbers can be assigned to a toll-free number.
The terminating number cannot be located outside of the Midco network area.
Installation charges may apply for a toll-free number, depending on the number requested. The toll-free long-distance usage rate is the same as the current standard long-distance rate.
How to Restrict Calls to Your Toll-Free Number
Some businesses may want to limit incoming toll-free calls to callers from specific geographic regions. This can reduce the cost associated with mistaken, unnecessary or fraudulent calls. At Midco, your toll-free number can be set up to receive calls from:
