Hi does anyone know who else apart from Vodafone offer a second phone number feeding into a single line. Just off contract and looking around as when I rang Vodafone the rep put us on hold and left us there.

Just for a home based business (small) as we have had it for a few years and haven't got everyone onto our home number. It started off as faxibilty to get the second number only , no fax.

Spark do secondary number with distinctive ring on a single line aka faxability. Or both ata ports enabled on the ONT with different numbers. The first is cheaper than the second. Just depends on what you want.

Spark and 2degrees do "landline on mobile" which is just a landline number that instead goes to the mobile. Fixed fee per month regardless of number of calls. $20 per month from 2degrees. Don't know how much Spark charge. It would be better for the business number anyway, as you would still be able to get calls to the landline number even when you are not at home.
