    non-geographical

    What does "non-geographical number" mean in the following context?

    Now compare it with a typical contract from a real network:

    * 900 minutes of free calls to any network...
    * Calls charged at 10p/minute thereafter
    * Calls to non-geographical numbers charged at 25p/minute
    * Unlimited free texts
    ...

    Thank you.

    My guess is it means "reghardless of the country or region". That said, the term makes little sense.

    It makes complete sense in the UK.
