118 telecom launches 4 way bundle for business customers


Daniel Corby, founder and CEO of 118 trades has announced plans to tripple the size of the telecoms subsidiary, 118telecom.

118telecom is a telecom reseller and actively sells 0800, 0808, 0844, 0845, 0870 and 0871 numbers and the exciting new ranges of alpa numeric numbers to small and medium sized businesses across the UK.

Speaking about the expansion, founder and CEO Daniel Corby said “118telecom offers real value in a competitive market place. We simply sell a number for life, where most of our competitors lease numbers for 12 months at a time. The fact that we sell the number for ever, and not just a short term lease and back it with inclusive minutes, means we have a real advantage and unique selling point over and above our competitors. The size of the market place is massive, every business with a telephone is a potential customer of 118telecom and we are hungry for their business.

Alpha numeric numbers have never really taken off in the UK – but if you visit the US or Australia for that matter, you’ll see these numbers are all the rage – I believe that 118telecom is well positioned to take advantage of this upsurge in business that these numbers will offer”

Speaking about where the business would come from, Daniel Corby said
“The parent company of 118telecom has massive recourse pools to make selling and connecting numbers a success. A sister company is the UK’s fastest growing directory business, 118 trades – and with 40,000 members, that’s where we are targeting first. Our technology will allow us to match numbers to businesses and activate lines within 20 seconds of the sale, compare this service level to other providers and I do not believe that there is any comparison. We are also preparing to launch a new 4 way bundle, which will include a memorable number, mobile, broadband and landline telecom solutions in 1 simple package”
