Thread: Landline for home office

  1. #1

    Default Landline for home office

    Hello, I work from home and I want to have a non-cellphone number for one of my businesses. Ideally, I wanted to get a Telkom landline, but the problem is I relocate almost every year so I do not think getting a landline number would work since I would need to change the number each year.

    What are my options and what are the costs of said options?

    The reason I want to have a non-cellphone number is for formalities.

    Maybe a VOIP number?

    Doesn't Telkom offer landline numbers on mobile for a fee?
    Get R50 off your first two UberEats orders when you use the offer code " CTEATS110 "

    How? I thought a landline number is location bound, not portable.

    Ahh okay normal telkom to VOIP okay, I will keep that one in mind, since I have VDSL in the apartment already, I should be able to just plug a phone in and that number should work? ( I just want inbound calls really, wont phone from it)

    My gosh. That looks good.

    Question if I already have a fixed line will they add that FLLA or would that be an additional R200 per month?

    All the phone needs is an internet connection. Boom.

    a larger capped bundle is better, uncapped gets shaped too easily.
