What is the Big Telephone Switch Off?

What is the big switch off?

By 2025 the Public Switch Telephone Network(PSTN) and Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) will be completely shutoff. In simpler terms, traditional telephone lines that we’ve used in the UK for hundreds of years are becoming redundant, it’s a sad moment, we know, however one that we have to make.


How will the switch off impact you?

For you, this changes nothing in the way that you’ll make calls, they’ll just be over different lines than they used to. This does mean however; your landlines will need to be switched to a digital Voiceover Internet Protocol (VoIP).


What are the advantages of digital voice services?

Moving to digital voice services provides many benefits, including:

  • Clearer voice quality
  • Lower costs
  • Simultaneous multiple calls
  • Accessing your landline in other locations
  • Scalability (adding new users)
  • More reliable
  • Future proofing
