Perhaps another reason that geographic telephone numbers such as 0191 are so popular is the fact that they get categorised as normal landline options. That means they get typically charged at standard rate. So, it’s not only the location callers will associate your 0191 contact with, but also they will instantly see it affordable too. Now that makes good business sense, don’t you think?

The benefits of choosing an 0191 number for your business – what you need to know

0191 is the area code for Sunderland, Newcastle, Gateshead and Durham, and the neighbouring areas. All telephone numbers for this area are made up of 7 digits.

If 0191 is followed by a 2, 4, 6 or 8, this indicates that it is a telephone number for Newcastle or Gateshead. Durham numbers have a 3 or 9 after the area code. Sunderland numbers have 1, 5 or 7 after 0191.

Telephone numbers that begin 01 or 02 are known as geographic numbers, meaning they relate to a landline in a specific location. However, this does not necessarily mean that a business or home with an 0191 number is definitely based in one of the areas mentioned above.

Why would you choose an 0191 number?

For example, telephone calls can now be made over the Internet, using services such as Skype, instead of the telephone network. Calls can be made or received anywhere in the world, but many homes and businesses use geographic numbers for these services.

Mobile phone providers now offer landline numbers for their mobile phones. Small businesses, in particular, use this facility to convey a permanent image and to give the impression that they are locally based.

As you can see from these examples, phoning a landline with a particular area code does not necessarily mean that the call is being received in that location. However, regardless of whether your call is being forwarded elsewhere or not, you will only pay the normal UK landline rate. This also applies to calls to a mobile phone with a landline number.

The cost of calls to a landline number, from your home phone, can vary depending on your provider and phone tariff. Some plans might allow you to make free calls at weekends or in the evenings, or both. Others do not charge for calls to geographic numbers. Always check with your telephone company for specific details of your plans and any charges. If you are charged for a call the maximum you can expect to pay is 13p per minute.

The cost of a call from your mobile to a landline number can be between 3p to 55p per minute. However, most mobile phone tariffs allow free calls to 01 and 02 numbers, within their monthly allowance. So, you will only be charged if you have used your allowance, or if your plan does not include free calls. Again, check with your mobile provider for tariff details and charges.

Yet another invaluable advantage that geographic numbers offer your business is their ability to enhance your branding, operating as an extension to your corporate signature. This can be further reinforced during the number selection process, which Number Supermarket have made simple by assigning a grading to each and every telephone number. Depending on how memorable your new 0191 telephone number is can be easily identified from its Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum rating.

Remember that you can also increase the memorable quality of your business’ contact number by presenting it in the correct format – 0191 xxx xxxx, ensuring your callers remember it with ease.
