What is actually happening?

BT have started to phase out their ISDN and PSTN lines, with the intention to switch off these lines for good by 2025. Essentially, this means that your business will be forced to replace these lines and all their connected equipment in order to make way for the newer, cheaper and more efficient alternatives, VoIP and SIP.

Why is this happening?

Unfortunately, traditional lines no longer meet the demand for new technology, seeing them offering a limited number of benefits. Additionally, traditional phone lines are made up of old technology which means your maintenance is much more frequent and costly. Therefore, this switch off will make way for the newer and more efficient alternative, which is also a significantly cheaper solution.

Who will the 2025 BT Switch Off affect?

Even if BT are not your direct providers, the 2025 BT Switch Off may still affect you. Everyone using analogue or digital phone lines, regardless of provider, will have their lines switched off.

What does this mean for me?

Your organisation will need to accommodate to this change, ensuring your operations continue to run smoothly. Therefore, you will need to upgrade your current analogue or digital lines to a new futureproof solution. This will not only save you money but widen your capabilities.

Luckily, there is still plenty of time to do your research, make changes, and prepare for the switch off to ensure that your vital equipment and services are not disconnected.

What options do I have?

When looking to upgrade from your obsolete lines, IP Technology is what you need. IP stands for Internet Protocol and is the modern alternative to PSTN & ISDN. There are two main types of these, VoIP and SIP.

  • VoIP – Voice over Internet Protocol. VoIP is the most popular modern alternative to PSTN lines and allows you to make and receive phone calls over the internet.
  • SIP – Session Initiation Protocol. SIP is a highly flexible technology which enables you to send and receive multimedia data e.g. video calls and voice calls
