True 800 Number
As the popularity and demand for toll free numbers has increased the availability of true 800 numbers has decreased and thus new exchanges (such as 888, 877 and most recently 866) have been made available.
The result is that original 800 numbers have become scare and nearly as precious as vanity numbers.
While the general public has come to recognize that the new numbers (888, 877 and 866) are also toll free numbers, an "800" number has an almost nostalgic appeal and can make a company with one appear older and more established.
Because of this, WorkEasy offers true "800" numbers, when available, for a slightly higher fee.
