It quickly became clear that Core Telecom were head and shoulders above our existing provider and indeed the wider market. They delivered an outstanding proposal and their team ensured the porting process was incredibly smooth. We are delighted to have chosen Core Telecom as a key supplier and look forward to many years of a very successful partnership.

– Jit Desal, Head of Customer Services

Porting numbers can often be a traumatic period in any business, but with Core Telecom we were helped every step of the way. With an account manager on site all week to help with teething issues, Core Telecom couldn’t have been any more helpful.

We upgraded sites in Leeds and Manchester to the VoIP system and received a top class service. Not to mention the cost savings and new features that came with the hosted solution.

– Matthew Dews, Head of IT


Core Telecom has provided inbound services to Chums Limited for over 3 years. The professionalism, integrity and the valuable, impartial advice which they have provided over the years has been excellent. In addition they have been able to provide an outstanding rate on our 0871 numbers which has further increased our overall revenue stream and helped our profitability.

I look forward to continuing working with Core Telecom and would happily recommend their services to any other business.

– Nick Clancy, Head of Operations

We originally started working with Core Telecom back in 2014 after they approached us to discuss the service we received on our 0844 telephone number.

It quickly became clear that what they were proposing was not only really simple to understand but would make complete commercial sense to take advantage of. Their service ever since has been fantastic, both their team and inbound call service has never let us down. Plus, our out payments are with us every month without fail. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their hassle free and reliable service.

Compass Community is one of the leading independent foster care agencies in the UK and is currently working with thousands of foster carers all over the country.

As the agency looks to recruit more and more foster carers, we needed to look right across the UK, so approached Core Telecom to help us present a nationwide image. By choosing an 0800 number, we encourage more callers, as the calls are free! We were delighted with how quickly the number was up and running and the service we have received has been brilliant!

We are working hard to create a leading edge and unique brand image for Mayfair Venues. So we selected a highly memorable 0333 number which definitely stands out from the crowd – customers regularly comment on it – and has undoubtedly increased both our calls and sales. We are planning to add additional services to it in the near future, in order to manage our calls even more efficiently.

Bodybarn provides its clients with a unique hair, beauty and holistic treatments and we have built our reputation on the skill enthusiasm and professionalism of our staff. But our clients’ experience starts long before they walk into the salon – it begins from the time they visit our website and choose to make an appointment. We believe that clients shouldn’t have to pay to book an appointment so we use an 0800 number as it provides our clients with a free call. This shows them we really care and has the additional benefit of encouraging more clients to call us

Our 0844 numbers are a key part of our business and we have been very impressed with your service. The services always run smoothly without incident, and our rebates are always paid on time. It is exactly what you want from every supplier!

– Anthony Ryan, Origin Storage Limited

We’ve operated an 0800 number for some time but over a long period had become frustrated with the service we received from our provider.

I originally contacted Core Telecom to discuss our options and their friendly team explained how simple it would be for us to port our number over to their network. We’d experience no extra costs or service interruption, and even save money as they’re rates were far more favourable. They took away the hassle of having to speak to our current provider who actually then deactivated and released our number without notification. In a mad panic I contacted Core who got to work straight away, within hours their engineers had built our number on their network and we began receiving calls straight away.

– Natalie Eichmann – Head of Sales & Commercial Development

Core Telecom’s service gives us a unique edge and is a great addition to our advertising proposition. Early indications are that our advertisers love it, so crucially, not only will we increase the volume of adverts we are publishing but the call revenue will be a valuable boost to our bottom line

The level of service has been outstanding; our account manager is always quick to respond and happy to help. We use the 0800 number service which gives us the opportunity to track calls and we have seen an increase in levels of response rate since we began the service.

Our 08 numbers have helped us separate out our individual business streams to make a more identifiable incoming call process. Not to mention the fact we can now take advantage of income from incoming non-customer calls. These historically would have been dead time and money, but at least they now contribute something towards our time.

Cabmania operates an online marketplace for Taxi bookings. We work all across the UK and we were looking for a quick and easy to implement solution to connect between our taxi and minicab operators with our customers. We chose Core Telecom for several crucial reasons. Their products and prices were exactly what we wanted but importantly we found that they were very responsive to our requests and really bent over backwards to meet our needs. In addition, their API meant that we could easily integrate their solution to our website, giving us fully automated control over telephone number allocation and assignment. I would have no hesitation in recommending Core Telecom to other businesses because they provide an outstanding service, are extremely professional and responsive, and their API has given us seamless integration with our website. I couldn’t ask for more and am grateful to the Core Telecom team for all of their support and efforts.

Core Telecom has been providing our surgery with a hosted phone system since 2016 and we whole-heartedly recommend them to anyone. Their understanding of what we need as a GP surgery was evident from our first meeting. The customer service has been amazing and they have helped us with any changes we’ve needed in line with the changes in our practice needs.

Shiad Mohamed – The City Medical Practice

Being a doctors surgery we are extremely reliant upon our phone system and need it to work 100% of the time. Core Telecom have provided us with a system that works perfectly, but with added disaster recovery we get peace of mind too. A fantastic company, and very friendly.
