Get PSTN switch-off ready

Embrace change as we switch off the old Public Switched Telephone Network and switch on to a modern, flexible phone, video, and messaging service.

Is your business ready for the PSTN switch-off?

From December 2025, in what is set to be the biggest communications change in a generation, BT Openreach will close the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). This means any PSTN based products your business uses today will need to change. PSTN not only supports traditional landlines, but also voice services such as ISDN2/30. The bulk of widely available broadband services, such as fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) or standard broadband (ADSL), also rely on the PSTN.

What will the switch-off look like?

Voice will become completely digital and delivered over the internet using Voice-over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology. Broadband services will begin transitioning to Full Fibre (FTTP) and single order broadband (SOGEA). These don’t rely on landline and are fully future-proofed, offering fast download speeds of up to 900Mbps.

How can I prepare my business?

Don’t worry, we’re here to help make the switch simple for you and your business. The new generation of services deliver fast, secure and reliable communications at a level undreamed of when the PSTN was launched.
