A geographic telephone number: what is it?
The geographic number is also called local number or fixed telephone number. It is, in effect, a virtual phone line used to present a local phone number to your customers. But while it looks the same as regular phone numbers, it doesn’t match any real physical line. The geographic number is only used to transfer your incoming calls to one or more terminals within your company.
A geographic number has 10 digits starting with 01, 02, 03, 04 or 05. In France, these prefixes correspond to the five large elementary numbering zones (ZNE) which are:
- Zone 01, whose prefix is 01, for the Île-de-France region;
- Zone 02, whose prefix is 02, for the northwest region and the Indian Ocean (including La Réunion and Mayotte);
- Zone 03, whose prefix is 03, for the north-eastern region of France;
- Zone 04, whose prefix is 04, for the south-eastern zone of France;
- Zone 05, whose prefix is 05, encompassing the south-west region as well as the overseas communities and territories (Guadeloupe, Martinique, Guyana).
However, the geographical call number can also correspond to a fixed virtual number in international countries.
