We offer a complete range of UK and Irish numbers; including geographic numbers, free phone numbers, revenue generating numbers and VoIP numbers.

This service is ideal for internet telephony companies who want to provide an end to end telephone service.

We offer full connectivity of IP or E1 originated calls using high quality carriers.

Managed connectivity is one of our key services. Over and above traditional A-Z offerings, this is a premium product designed for communication providers and other customers such as call centres concerned about the quality of their product.

Why choose Magrathea for this service?

  • Our packages are flexible and our prices are competitive
  • We have a user friendly API with excellent functionality
  • We offer knowledgeable support to help you comply with industry registration procedures if required

How it works

Our pricing models are simple, based on how many numbers are used or the capacity consumed.
Our advanced client API enables you to select and provision numbers from our database in real time, so that your customers can sign up for a number and be up and running within seconds. All our numbers are also available with our added value services such as fax to email or voicemail to email allowing us to save you time building your products.
We can use our world class IP network to deliver the calls either to your servers or in many cases direct to your customers. VoIP users have a choice of protocols: we support the traditional SIP system with a wide variety of codecs as well as niche protocols such as IAX2 , which is native to deployments based on Digium's ‘Asterisk’ open source platform.

If you have a PSTN based application that provides ‘out of area’ subscriber numbering, we can route the numbers to your customers’ ‘real’ number — all as part of one single package. See our Chargeable Number Translation Service (NTS) for details. 

Numbers available from Magrathea include:

  • UK geographic subscriber numbers — complete countrywide coverage.
  • Irish geographic subscriber numbers — a complete list of area codes.
  • 056 numbers — designated by Ofcom for use with ‘New Voice Services’ such as voice over broadband.
  • 070 personal numbers — numbers designed to be used as contact numbers or a single number for travelling users, wherever they might be.
  • 0800/0808 numbers — business contact numbers free to the caller where the user receiving the call pays the charge.
  • 084x/087x numbers — number translation numbers mainly used to provide business contact numbers.
  • 09x premium rate numbers — these numbers are available for services where the caller pays for the content delivered on their own telephone bill.
  • ‘Gold’ numbers — are available for all the above number types. Memorable numbers, ending 0000 or 1234 for example, will enable your customer to maximise their sales opportunities and will provide an excellent ROI when used in advertising.

Direct Connection to Magrathea

If you use our Numbering Service, we can offer you a direct connection to our network, cutting out the internet. We offer special connection rates to all customers who have co-located equipment, have a direct interconnect into us, or use our hosted billing service.
A direct connection is ideal for communication providers with high volume customers.

Why choose Magrathea for this service?

We offer various routing options using our standard and ‘gold’ routes with reflective pricing to allow customers flexibility in their routing

We have high quality routes with excellent reliability

We offer automatic failover if problems arise, backed up by regular manual checks on underperforming destinations

We have a highly experienced support desk with a customer-centric approach to destination fault resolution

We have excellent relations with carriers for fault resolution

How it works

We use multiple world class networks to deliver your telephone call to its destination using our years of experience in managing telecommunication networks to control call routing and pricing.

We use our volume buying power to ensure that the service gives great value for money and enables us to have access to routes that would normally not be available for low volume traffic. We also offer an even higher standard 'gold' routing product for those calls where you must have the very best possible quality available.

Our intelligent switching equipment manages routing in real time ensuring that if any routing problem occurs, the call is automatically rerouted through alternative suppliers.

There is no requirement for credit checking processes or deposits as our service operates on a strict prepay only basis, which protects you from the effects of fraudulent traffic. This guarantees a stability not often found in this market.
