Suppliers of 1300 Numbers in Australia
1300 numbers are 10-digit numbers that work Australia-wide where the caller is charged a local call rate when dialling from an Australian phone line, including mobiles. Being Australia wide means there is no need to use an area prefix when calling the number.
How do 1300 numbers work?
When a customer places a call to a 1300 number, the call enters the network and a search is conducted to find the relevant routing strategy that applies to the toll number. A routing strategy effectively tells the network where to direct the call and in the case of 1300 numbers, it can be directed to a landline or mobile (or both) depending on what you require. This all happens instantaneously, so the caller doesn’t experience any delay.
