The 2025 switch-off and what it means for your business
What’s really happening?
If you haven’t heard already, BT will be switching off traditional phone lines in 2025. Don’t worry, we’re not trying to scare you, we want you to understand clearly exactly what that means.
The reason traditional lines will be switched off comes down to the fact they no longer meet demand for new technology. For example, it doesn’t support data connections (the internet) and it’s restricted to a slim amount of benefits, such as voicemail and the nifty 1471.
But what does it mean for me?
In short, you need to ensure that you have a solution ready – but you’ve got six whole years to do that – right?! So don’t panic.
However, if you’re looking for a new phone system between that period you need to choose right to be more cost effective in the future.
Not only that but new technology allows you to do more such as record calls and use the internet to make calls, reducing your costs in the long term.
With eve, you don’t need to compromise on quality when you make the change from ISDN to SIP. The next generation technology is reliable, resilient and can be cheaper to buy and use.
