Going Fast

If the current trend continues, tens of thousands of toll free phone numbers will become unavailable this week. How many remain available? That figure is a moving target. But suffice it to say that there are not nearly enough good toll free numbers to last for very much longer.

With the release of new 855 area code toll free numbers, the problem of the low supply would be eased. Subscribers would be able to get new custom numbers that fit there needs and there would be less compromise. We hope the new 855 numbers are released soon, before the supply gets much lower. With tens of thousands of numbers being taken each week, they are going fast.
