Have questions about Vonage for Home?

We’ve got answers.



Setting up Vonage

Yes. To use Vonage you'll need a broadband connection, a home phone, and a Vonage Box™ which we'll send to you when you sign up.

Most phone numbers can be transferred to Vonage. See our plans page for more information.

You can still use Vonage's services as a second phone line.

You can choose your area code and phone number with our premium plans.

Simply select a premium plan and choose your area code and number in the checkout process.

They differ from numbers beginning '01' and '02' in one important respect - they are non-geographic; that is to say an '03' number may be used anywhere in the UK.

Calls to '03' numbers are charged at standard UK National Rate - exactly the same cost as calls to numbers beginning '01' and '02'. Numbers beginning '03' are not premium rate numbers.

No. Calls to '03' Numbers are charged by all operators at exactly the same price as calls to '01' and '02' numbers.

We deliver your Vonage Box™ to you within 48 hours of you signing up. Then you simply plug in to your existing broadband and your standard home phone and you're able to make calls straight away.

Unlike many landline phone providers, with Vonage you only pay for your call plan and any calls made outside the plan. There are no Vonage charges for line rental.

See here for our activation and disconnection fees.

Vonage moves with you. Just plug in your Vonage Box™ the same way, wherever you are. Your number stays the same and you'll carry on making calls with your plan.
