FreeNumber: your free VoIP lineFreeNumber is a free telephone line with Voice Over IP technology with a telephone number to receive calls from any phone in the world. You can choose a new phone number with an area code of your choice in Italy and in some foreign countries. Service will be activated immediately.
How it works:
VoIP technology makes it possible to have a phone conversation using an Internet connection because it turns your voice into data that can be sent over the web. Thanks to this, we can offer you modern and complete phone services that you can purchase and manage directly online.
