Virtual Numbers /

300,000 new 070 Numbers made available

We’re pleased to announce the release of 300,000 new 070 Personal Numbers. These numbers can now be purchased on our website and in our customer control panel – myTTNC.

What are 070 Personal Numbers?

Created by Ofcom in 1995, the 070 Number range was designed to be used as a ‘Personal’ or ‘Follow-me’ number so people or businesses could offer a single contact number and divert it to a landline or mobile number. Back then, mobile roaming wasn’t available, so these numbers were quite useful to people that travelled abroad or around the UK.

Are 070 Numbers expensive to call?

Not anymore; In May 2017, Ofcom announced a Call Cost Review for 070 Numbers to ensure callers are protected from high call charges and unfair practices. This led to a consultation in 2018, which recommended the call rate for 070 Numbers would be the same call rate for mobile numbers. Those changes took effect on 1 October 2019.

Why use an 070 Personal Number?

  • Keep your number private
    070 Numbers are ideal to use whenever you don't want to give out your mobile or landline number.

  • Use for adverts
    They are great to use when advertising and can be switched off when you don’t want to receive any more calls.

  • Low cost for callers
    Calling an 070 Number costs the same as calling a UK mobile number and can be included in bundles with some providers.

  • No physical phone line needed
    070 Numbers are Virtual Numbers and can be forwarded to any landline, mobile or VoIP phone, in any location.
