Question: Can my Fax number receive calls from anywhere?



Answer: Yes - from any South African telephone number. Your personal 086 number is handled by a specialized exchange that cannot translate calls from international numbers to your local 086 number. This is true for any 086 number supplied by Telkom. This limitation is not too bad since it is a far better idea to send email rather than transatlantic faxes. For this reason many international companies with a local presence in South Africa use a Fax to Email number so that their local clients pay local call charges to send them faxes.
