DIDXchange UK Marketplace Advantages Announced

By David Sims, TMCnet Contributing Editor

Super Technologies (News - Alert) has announced that wholesale telephony-related companies can join its DIDXchange marketplace and "take advantage of 1000 United Kingdom DIDs at $200 per month," according to company officials.
That price is "less than twenty-five cents per DID VoIP phone number per month wholesale," company officials note.
"Since the United Kingdom's capital, London, is a global financial hub for international business, and its relative poverty rate was 17 percent in 2002, less than 14 percent in 2006 and even lower since, it appears to be an ideal place to at least have a virtual presence for business and social reasons via a local phone number," said Suzanne Bowen, vice president of Super Technologies.
'What other reasons do individuals and organizations ask their telephone or other type of voice service provider for a UK phone number, even though they do not physically live or work in the UK?" Bowen asked. "Current events and trends show why it might be beneficial to have a UK phone number, so that people in the UK can dial a UK number belonging to the end-user of wholesale member."
The call will reach the end-user wherever the member enables and the end-user chooses, Bowen explained.
She noted that the United Kingdom's assets include the North Sea oil and gas reserves, and that its industries, "such as wholesale and retail trade, hotels and restaurants; transport, storage and communication; financial services, real estate and letting, education, and public administration and defense," are "healthy and of huge value."
Having a local phone number "will enable those whose business is related to and/or contingent to the UK, but whose businesses are outside of UK, to establish a presence in UK," she said. reports that within the OECD, the country with the highest number of expatriates is the UK: "More than 3 million British expatriates now live abroad and the trend towards expatriation seems to be accelerating."
Companies who offer services like Vonage, Skype (News - Alert), Verizon, British Telecom, Starhub, PCCW, Zain, and Google Voice can sign up and join DIDXchange, Bowen said.
