The BIG switch-off is coming…

Looking at the last few disruptive years in the economic landscape, a lot has happened since 2020. These last few years have certainly flown by. Fast forward, we are in the last quarter of the year, swiftly heading into 2023.

There is a huge change happening within our industry in the next few years that pave the way for a complete digital transformation in telecommunications.  Businesses will need support to ensure they are ready for how the changes will impact their operational telecommunications.   

Without responding to technological change, your business telecommunications may be interrupted.

What is the change? 

In simple terms, certain lines that may supply a single phone, broadband, a PDQ machine or a phone system for example will become redundant; these lines are specifically known as ISDN lines or PSTN (A standard phone line). All these lines will be switched off.

Modern digital behaviours have paved the way for introducing an improved digital and future-proofed network fit for the modern era. These will all be internet based.

When is the change happening?

Without an exact date, we are told that these lines will no longer be operational by December 2025. 

Who does it affect?

Both homes and businesses. 

How will phones look in the future?

It means that landline calls will be delivered over digital technology called Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), which uses a broadband connection.
