DIDs (Direct in dial – incoming phone numbers)
FaktorTel is capable of providing real world phone numbers directly connected to your internet phone. This means you can have a Melbourne phone number connected to your internet phone. For example, the number could be: (03) 1234 5678.
DID Numbers explained
A DID Number doesn’t need to reside in your location. Therefore, you may have a number that is outside your area. Which means your customers can call you at local call rates if they are situated within the locality of your number. You can have multiple DID’s for different locations on an account, directed to different endpoints or all being answered in the same location – whatever works best for you.
