Toll Free 866 Popularity

866 numbers are the newest toll free numbers, released by the Federal Communications Commission in 2000 to address the shortage of 800, 888, and 877 numbers. Once consumers began to recognize the 866 pre-fix as toll free, the value of 866 soared. Recent studies indicate that 9 out of 10 consumers recognize 866 as a toll free number. The 866 numbers are more popular then ever before, increasing in demand every day. When the 855 toll free numbers are released they are said to be even more popular since they won’t be the newest anymore. Get all the details here.

Popular Toll Free Area Codes

The “youngest” toll free area code is 866 and it’s definitely gaining popularity because there is a greater number of available words and easy to remember digits under the 866 area code. Once reserved for use as a personal toll free area code, many businesses are starting to see that having a great customized toll free number can be more marketable than having an 800 or 888 area code.
