The Big Switch Off. Why it's time to upgrade your business phone system.
There are big changes coming in the way in which phone services including phone and broadband are to be delivered from 2025. BT Openreach intends to switch off traditional landlines in 2025. This is also referred to as the Public Switch Telephone Network (PSTN) and Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) switch off.

What is VoIP – Voice over Internet Protocol?
VoIP uses a company’s existing internet connection to transmit voice calls. Phone calls are converted into a digital signal which is then sent over a high-speed internet connection.
You’ll be able to hold onto your existing phone number and we will replace your existing service in one easy action – with minimal disruption.
Advantages of VoIP
VoIP is a very reliable form of communication which delivers high quality calls over the internet. As no physical lines are required to make a call, VoIP is not bound by location. VoIP phone systems are cloud based, so there’s no need to have a server room for telecoms equipment.
It’s time to act
The switch off has already started and change is taking place.
