notes:

To receive rebate / revenue share from ORB Telemedia we need to contract, this is required to fulfil due-dilligenc requirements designed to disuade international money laundering and fraud, PSTN forwarding can be enabled instead of outpayment / revenue share if a forwarding destination costs more to route to than the applicable rebate, we will not permit the call without prior agreement's

* You should be able to receive international inbound calls to your 07x number, although this depends on which network your callers use. Some restrictions can also be imposed depending on the callers package, they should check with their respective suppliers.

** End user revenue share is not permitted on this range, we have a charitable donations points scheme for loyalty usage, and we can pass revenue share along to other carriers,  providing they adhere to the rules, more information on request.

ORB Telemedia eliminates any need to give out private home or unlisted numbers but gives you the power to receive calls on those lines when you want to. By routing ORB Telemedia numbers onto your private numbers, it is easy to take calls there.

Caller ID substitution for the display of number dialled, - You can setup our system to show which of your inbound numbers has been dialled. Instead of seeing the caller ID, you can choose to see the number pattern announced, this is perfect for virtual presence operations and small home offices providing virtual secretary services for multiple businesses, when you see the number, you know the business (or personal reference) and you can answer the call in the correct manner for family, friends, colleagues, customers, adverts, etc.

Failover Priority - If you are unable to take a call, or are already busy taking a call, you can customise our system to automatically divert calls to other phones so that they can always be answered in the priority you set in our system.

Destination Groupings. (for guidance)

We will route numbers onto various networks and destinations without additional charge, however if you have significant incoming volume, you would be advised to consider SIP routing and opting for a rebate of the revenue share. In the case of UK Personal numbers we are not permitted to share any rebate with the end user, for this reason we route the numbers onto the end points
free of charge within the UK, and most international destinations subject to limitations (we do not route to high rate virtual mobiles and other revenue share numbers). We do however provide a
reseller platform, whereby you can resell our numbers to your own end users (providing you dont share the revenue)  and make a significant income,  for existing end users of 070 UK numbers whilst we cannot share any end user rebate with you, we are willing to convert your incoming minutes into points, adding more services and numbers will gain more points, and when you reach a sufficient point value, we can make a payment to a registered charity of your choice, we can then reset the points and continue, this helps us help you help others and we will discuss this option on a personal one to one basis as different number prefixes dictate the suitability and price of calling. Did your previous 070 provider tell you this? 


VoIP SIP Routing is free - for all number types, you can get your number via SIP, create a VoIP account without credit, configure a registration and receive calls immediately. We provide this service for all number types, you can take as many incoming calls at the same time as you can handle, our system is enterprise ready and automatically scalable. Depending on the service prefix, you have the choice of Free SIP routing, Inclusive PSTN routing,  domestic and foreign,  rebate from inbound calls and PAYG routing. All routing is automatic and without announcements, If you have questions or special requests please contact us.
