If you have a global customer base or are looking to move into new territories, one of the first things you may wish to consider is your ability to make and or receive phone calls. The modernisation of telephony, thanks to companies like RocketPhone, has made this process incredibly easy.
When calling internationally, it makes sense to acquire local numbers as this can help improve connection rates. For most countries acquiring a virtual phone number is straightforward and can be achieved in minutes. However, in some countries, local regulations dictate that local and/or national numbers be affiliated with an address associated within that locality. In other words, you are required to submit proof of address that your business has a physical presence. This goes back to the early days of telephony, when phone numbers were assigned specifically to an individual’s home or business. While this is not the way that phone numbers typically work these days, telephony providers must comply with these regulations.
