We are living in a digital age… literally; because over the next few years analogue phone lines will be going the way of analogue TV signals.
There seems to be a lot of undue panic about the process – perhaps if you were worried about missing Eastenders when the TVs switched, then you’re the type of person who would be equally as worried about missing you mum phoning you to tell you what she thought of Eastenders…
The truth is that is that with a little foresight switching is an extremely straightforward process. Even busy companies needn’t worry about downtime if they just get in ahead of the switchover.
TC has already helped dozens of clients to switch to VOIP (voice over internet protocol) lines via a fibre network, and our engineers are experts at the ‘no fuss no muss’ approach to telephony, meaning that businesses needn’t worry about disrupting their communications. Call us, or your preferred telephony company to discuss your needs and you can stop worrying.
Basically, your main take away from this article should be to BE PREPARED!
BT has announced plans to move all its customers to IP, and shut down its entire traditional telephone network by 2025, at which point we will see the total cessation of BT’s PSTN (public switched telephone network) and the withdrawal of its wholesale line rental (WLR) products.
That still gives you plenty of time to calmly and resolutely take care of your telephony – so if you’re running around trying to sort it in December 2024: don’t say we didn’t warn you!
