1300 OR 1800 NUMBERS FOR just $10 ONLY

Available Numbers

To understand how 1300 number and 1800 number availability works, we will need to expand how the industry started, how we got to the position we are in today and what are you options.

The industry was de-regulated back in the last 90’s which created the space for smaller players to enter against the encumbants. 

During this process the ACMA created an auction process for 13/1300/1800 numbers where you could nominate for a number, then at the next auction day place a bid and fingers crossed you won it.   There were a number of key players who decided this was a great time to buy up some assets and they did.  This has wiped out most of the obvious words from the available number pool. 

Simple Telecom stays away from this part of the industry, we prefer to just point you in the right direction, encourage you to buy a number directly if its available, or come up with something else and buy that as a backup plan.

The place to buy numbers is: www.thenumberingsystem.com.au. You will be looking at a minimum of $250 to grab a number from them and have your credit card ready to make the process quick and easy.

Once you have purchase the number from them, enter the relevant details in the signup process paying special attention to the ROU Name.  This is generally the business name you registered the new number with the ACMA on the www.thenumberingsystem.com.au website.

In the Simple Telecom signup process we give you the option of activating a premium number – or opting for a standard free number.  These numbers are free in the sense of comparing them to the premium numbers, they have no initial charge, only the ongoing monthly fees.  

The downside of these numbers is – they won’t make a special word, or have a great memorable sequence of numbers.  Also, they are randomly assigned. We have very little control over the numbers and by default we allocate numbers at random.  If you have a particular objection to a number you receive – you can reach out to support and request that we switch the number.  Obviously this needs to be done immediately so it’s cheaper for all parties involved.

Short answer is potentially. We refer you directly to the source, the ACMA.  Head to www.thenumberingsystem.com.au and click on the green button on the bottom left. Search for your number here. If its available – buy it. If not, try some other combination!

If you opt for a free standard number, it will be done quick as possible – usually we get this done within a few minutes during business day.

If you opt for a premium number (That makes a word or sequence of numbers purchased from the ACMA) then it can vary depending on the word load with the carrier, however at the time of writing we have been averaging 4 business days.
