UK Phone Number Availability
- UK Based Local Fax Numbers? Yes

UK Based Billing
- Pound Sterling Currency Pricing? Yes
- UK-wide Faxing included in Pricing? Yes (prices include service to any number in Canada or the USA, as well as more than 40 other countries)
eFax offers services priced GBP. We find this helpful for UK users as it limits the exchange rate charges and pricing changes that can happen with purchasing from a US based service.
Faxing to any number in the UK the “local” coverage for both freephone and locally based fax numbers.
Location of Servers and Service for UK Based Customers
- eFax Headquarters Location: Hollywood, California, USA
- UK Subsidiary?: No
- Server Location: Undetermined
It is unknown whether a fax transmission between two UK fax numbers would happen entirely within server infrastructure located within the UK (we have found no tier 1 online fax provider who can guarantee that fax data stays only inside of the UK.
eFax’s UK based service leaves nothing lacking compared with the US version of the service. eFax has built in a good standard for international and multilingual support in their service, and it translates well to non-US countries.
