2017 – 1300 Numbers are here to stay
Who would of thought that back in early 2000’s, back when almost any smart number was available for purchase – that they would turn into such a big integral part of business.
With the recent sale of the specialist 1300 number telco, Fonebox – it’s really shed the spotlight on the industry and the margins that some Telco’s are still charging for these products.
Telstra have bought back their pricing significantly over the past few years, and some of the dirt cheap telco’s have vanished – probably due to unpaid GST or other tax and have been shutdown by the ATO.
With the wave of regulation recently (as in past 4 years) bought in by the power’s that be – it seems this industry has really cemented itself as a core industry in Australia.
