About 087 Numbers
0870, 0871 and 0872 numbers are national numbers, costing a fixed rate of up to 12p per minute to call from a BT landline. They are still recognizably 08 numbers (giving that national image) but are cheaper to have than other 08 numbers and include call forwarding to landlines and mobiles in Canada, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, USA, Europe and over 100 other destinations Worldwide! As such, 087 numbers are suitable for both personal and professional use and let your customers and contacts call you where ever you are in the World.
Simply use a number from our range of numbers or take advantage of Number Portability to move your current number from BT. Our network will then deliver calls to your chosen destination – call centre, sales team or service desk etc.. Callers only pay for a national call (included on their normal phone bill).

Calls to our 087 number ranges cost 12p per minute from a BT landline, plus the call providers access charge. Calls from other networks and mobiles may cost more!
Now managed by Phone-paid Services Authority the premium rate number regulator.
From the 1st August 2009, you are required by law to advertise the cost of the call to all 087 numbers issued by FranzCom. This can be found in ”number costs and other information” section.
You can simply put ”Calls from landlines cost 12p per minute at all times. Mobiles and other networks may cost more.” or a more detailed wording which has had the “stamp of approval” from PPP: ”Calls to this number will cost you 12p per minute from a standard BT UK landline. Calls from other landline networks may cost you more. Calls from mobile networks may not be included in your standard inclusive minutes package and will be charged between 15p and 45p per minute”.
