Nationwide number 089: features and advantages of using it




Earlier we have already told you about the features of the 0800 number. And today we will share information about phone numbers that start with 089, because they cause interest and questions for many people.

What is a number with the index 089?

The introduction of SIP-numbers in Ukraine began in the early 2000s. It was the time when Internet technologies started to develop actively, and at the same time many companies were looking for alternative ways of communication in order to reduce their costs for international calls.

An important step for standardisation and regulation of the SIP-number market in Ukraine was the introduction of the 089 code, the numbers with which are used to provide SIP-telephony services. The 089 code was introduced to separate numbers used by virtual operators and VoIP providers from traditional telephone numbers. I.e. index 089 in the number identifies a specific operator, where the next digit after 089 is the code of the operator that provides services. For example, the number resource of Maxnet will look like this: 089-9ХХХ-ХХ-ХХ-ХХ, where “9” is the code of the operator.

Thus, telephone numbers that start with 089 are nationwide virtual telephone numbers intended for making calls over the Internet. In general, subscribers are allocated a SIP-number in the format 089-XXX-XXX-XXX, which remains unchanged and is valid in any settlement of Ukraine. This gives an opportunity to receive incoming calls to the city number “in your pocket” in any place (at home, at work, on holiday).

Nowadays SIP-numbers with the code 089 have become a standard tool for many businesses and individuals who are looking for a reliable and budget-friendly way of communication. Such numbers are actively used in call centres, remote working and international business. To use numbers that start with 089, an IP-phone, office IP-PBX or cloud PBX, computer, smartphone or tablet are suitable. Read more about the equipment for SIP-telephony here.
