0843 Numbers are an extension of the 0844 number, they are charged identically and were added as the number of remaining 0844s are getting low.
Both 0843 and 0844 numbers are non-geographic numbers that are forwarded on to a main geographic Number. There are several reasons a business will select an 0843 number;
- They generate income on a per minute rate for every incoming call.
- They are less popular than its almost identical counterpart (0844) and therefore finding a memorable number is both easier and cheaper
- The number contains a plethora of options for the business to transfer the calls to different numbers without ever changing the non-geographical number behind it.
