Multitel provides international phone numbers that will ring on your own PBX (or on your own phone number). Imagine you are a US based company having business partners and customers in the UK. Before you would open up a physical office in UK, you could just let Multitel redirect a UK phone number to your own phone. This way, customers and partners in the UK will see you as a local business. Same goes for regular people. If you have family in France, why not allow them to call you on a local , French number? It would certainly slash the high cost for international calls on their phone bill. Add to this services as fax autodetect , fax to email, voicemail with speech to text transcription and you've got yourself a *Multi TEL* product!
