Who are National Business Communications?

NBC is a business to business telecom services provider. We strive to offer the most competitive rates on the market, matched with unparalleled services. With years of experience in telecoms and energy markets, NBC have built a professional partnerships portfolio with industry leading suppliers, to source your business the best rates and data connections available.

Will I have to change my lines and number?

There is no need to install new lines or change your telephone number. Your line and telephone number belong to the fantastic Openreach network and this is where your services will remain. All that changes is that NBC will become your new billing supplier. Should you require additional lines, or data connection upgrades, NBC will take care of everything.

Will my business be affected by changing my supplier?

NBC manage all necessary processes, which means the impact on your business is extremely minimal. Once we have acquired the services on your line, your billing will be assigned to NBC and we will ensure that you are equipped with the right equipment and apparatus in order for you to continue with your day to day. Allow us to take the hassle out of change and provide you with the most efficient connections available to your business.

How will my telecoms billing work going forward?

NBC become your new billing provider at your agreed rates. Once you have migrated to NBC, you will receive one final bill from your current supplier and as of the following month, you will be billed by us. As a business committed to reducing carbon footprints, our preferred method of sending bills is via email. As per industry and direct debit guarantee regulations, you will be informed of the bill amount at least ten days before payments are taken.

What is a hosted & SIP solution and is it right for my business?

A hosted or SIP system enables your telecoms to be routed through a broadband connection, thus enabling your voice and information data to be more efficient, quicker and stronger, than conventional lines. ISDN and a majority of the PSTN infrastructure will be shut down by 2025, meaning all telephony in the UK will be heavily reliant on cloud based services. Switch today to future-proof your business.

Surely I can find better deals on comparison sites?

This is a common misconception. Comparison sites are built to offer you rates from a smaller selection of common providers, offering supply channels designed for residential and social premises and not particularly for business use. NBC are connected to over fifty suppliers, enabling us to perform searches based on very specific criteria and best suited to your business needs and requirements.

How will you use my personal information and data?

NBC is completely compliant with GDPR conditions out set by the changes in regulation as of 25th May 2018. Please refer to our Privacy Policy for more details.
