The Big Switch Off is coming
By 2025 BT Openreach intends to switch off traditional landlines, which means now is the time to think about switching over to the alternative - VoIP, Voice over IP – routed through the Internet.
Providers will stop selling PSTN, the traditional public switched telephone network; this would be commonly your landline that currently provides you with telephone and landline services. ISDN products in 2023 and by 2025 PSTN will be completely phased out.
How does VoIP work?
Voice calls are transmitted over the internet using your broadband connection. This is a much more flexible approach to making calls and is therefore becoming the telephony industry standard.
Why VoIP is better than traditional landlines
1. VoIP is scalable and can support your business as it grows
2. It is a flexible solution that doesn’t tie you to one physical location – perfect as the world embraces remote and hybrid working
3. No initial on ongoing maintenance costs… great news as we are all seeing costs rise across the board
4. This is a future proofed solution
