Another advantage of Broadband phone service is the ability to have a Virtual phone number. This allows you to have a phone number with an area code based in places other than where you live or work.
For example, you live in San Francisco and desire a number with a 415 area code. However, your mother lives in Portland and her area code is 503. MachMedia can provide you with a virtual number with a 503 area code that rings at your home in San Francisco – your mother can call you without paying long distance, and you are not charged for the incoming call! And remember, if she becomes a MachMedia customer, then incoming and outgoing calls between you two are FREE!
• Virtual numbers can eliminate long-distance charges among your U.S. and overseas offices.
• They can also keep down overhead costs by giving you a local presence for clients and eliminating expensive 800 charges.
