A geographic phone number is a fixed-line telephone number beginning with a geographically assigned area code (e.g. 012 for Pretoria, 021 for Cape Town). The primary advantage of geographic phone numbers is that they are widely recognised and trusted by local customers.

Unlike traditional fixed-line numbers, non-geographic telephone numbers (087 numbers) are regarded as ‘national’ numbers . Non-geographic numbers can not be traced back to a certain city or region within South Africa. Such numbers are commonly used by organisations that conduct business nationwide, not just in a specific area. Traditionally, 087 numbers are used to serve clients from one central call center. Calls can then be transferred to departments that are located anywhere in the country. 087 numbers are best suited for businesses who wish to establish the perception of having a national presence.
