RealTime IT News Receives its Own Local Area Code

BERLIN -- The Karlsruhe-based AG is the first Internet company in Germany to receive its own local area code from the Regulatory Authority for Telecommunications and Posts (RegTP).

The allocation of the number 01212 creates a local network for users, which is comparable to an area code such as 089 for Munich or 040 for Hamburg. This will enable AG to assign telephone numbers independently in the future and to offer new, Internet-based telecommunications services.

As its first application, will assign lifetime telephone numbers to registered users of its FreeMail Unified Messaging Service. The Nuremberg-based Workways GmbH, as a wholly owned subsidiary, offers Internet-based Unified Communication solutions to companies. With the number 01212, an Internet-based telecommunications solution under the name Workways UC (Unified Communication) will now be offered as a whole.
