What is Local Calling?

Local calling refers to making phone calls within a specific geographical area, often using a local phone number.

The importance of local calling for global businesses

Local calling plays an important role for businesses that offer services internationally. Aside from enabling cost-effective global communications, local numbers help establish trust and credibility with customers through familiar and recognizable area codes. Local calling also ensures adherence to local regulations and requirements, allowing businesses to maintain a legal presence in multiple markets.

Staying compliant as you scale

New regulations emerge on CLI management and outbound call routing frequently in an attempt to combat spam calls and CLI-spoofing. As a result, global National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) have started to ban in-country CLIs originating outside of the country and third-party CLIs. In recent months, Singapore, Belgium, Germany, Hong Kong, and Ireland have enacted similar measures. Additional countries are currently adopting comparable restrictions to address the growing issue of spam and robo-calling worldwide.

With Telnyx’s local calling, you can avoid running into issues with your calls being blocked and ensure a smooth experience for you and your users.
