Difference Between a Toll vs Toll Free Number
Most conference calling service providers in the country offer either toll or toll free or both in their services. What is the difference and which one should you choose?
First, toll numbers that you dial into are 10-digit telephone numbers. They can be used for long-distance calling and may or may not be free depending on your current service provider. Also, depending on your location, your rate for long distance calling may be higher or lower than other locations or service providers. If your plan offers free unlimited toll number, then it won’t cost you a penny. If your plan offers free toll number for a limited set of calls, then you will have to monitor how often you call long-distance. You also have to look at quality. You don’t want to call your loved ones on the other side of the country and their voice is static on the phone. Pick a service with high quality long-distance networking and an affordable plan.
Toll-Free numbers are the long 800 that includes 800, 888, 866, 877, and even 855. Toll-free numbers are what they say they are…..they are free to use for the people who will use it. The person who pays for the call is the host or the person who sets up the call. So basically if you do not want to be charged anything, be on the receiving end of a toll-free call.
Both numbers work great but both involve searching for a service provider that can offer you the lowest rates at the highest quality. Most businesses use the toll-free 800 numbers because it can be less hassle.
