Get your own Domestic Toll-Free Number
Domestic Tollfree services can be set up on your installed Maxis main voice services:
ISDN PRI, Business Telephone services, VoiceConnect and VoiceSIP services.
For Freefone 1800, your business will bear all domestic call charges.
For Localfone 1300, this leaves your business with charges for local calls and
the difference between national and local call charges from outstation calls.
Encourages business enquiries
When your customers do not have to pay exorbitant prices (or do not have to pay at all) to call you, they would be more willing to call to enquire on products and services.
Promotes business recognition
Establish business recognition with a single easy-to-remember phone number, serving as an effective sales and marketing tool for your company.
Improved cost control
For better control of your company’s telephone expenses, your outstation personnel can call the main office using the toll-free number.
Increased customer loyalty
Offering toll-free or local-charge number as an after-sales service to your customer shows your commitment to your customer services. This will help you gain your customers’ confidence and loyalty.
Frequently Asked Questions

How many calls a day will I be able to handle?
