We can help your business prepare for the Switch Off
Openreach will switch off copper analogue lines (PSTN and ISDN) networks over the next three years. This means that if you’re currently using traditional phone lines, you need to migrate to a VoIP or hosted solution soon.
We understand that your business phone system is a crucial part of day-to-day running. With a hosted or VoIP communication solution in place, you’ll benefit from a solution that’s reliable, flexible and cost-effective, streamlining your business communications and encouraging collaboration.
With our team of communications experts on hand, we’re perfectly placed to help you migrate from ISDN to hosted.
How to prepare your business for the ISDN switch off
Preparing for the ISDN switch off is easy with Alfonica. We’ll work with you to identify your requirements and recommend the best solution, handling everything from start to finish. We’re committed to helping businesses easily migrate to hosted or VoIP solutions.
What is the Switch Off?
At the end of December 2025, the network that supports traditional telephone lines will be switched of and withdrawn from service.
Why is the Switch off happening?
As broadband services have increased in quality and reliability over the past decade, the network
that supports traditional phone lines has become almost completely digital. In fact, there are already
some areas where you can't buy traditional phone lines, so you'll need to consider moving
to a hosted or VolP solution soon.
Stop Sell has already started - take action now
Openreach have already begun the withdrawal of ISDN/PSTN services by issuing
Stop Sell Notices. You won't be able to add new traditional phone lines in areas
where Stop Sell has already taken effect.
We can help you migrate from ISDN to the newest, future-proof solutions, and we’ll be there every step of the way. Leave the acronyms and the jargon to us, and we’ll design a solution that’s tailored to your organisation’s needs. We make connectivity, communication and collaboration easy.
Moving to a hosted solution is cost effective because the installation and
maintenance costs are minimal. A hosted solution also means that you avoid
paying expensive traditional phone line bills, as your calls will be placed over
competitively priced internet connectivity instead.
A VolP or hosted system is cost-effective, reliable and full of advanced
features that are simply not available with traditional ISDN phone lines.
These features include increased call control, call recording, free calls between
multiple locations and dedicated lines.
VolP or hosted systems allow for increased flexibility, scaling up and
down seamlessly to match your exact requirements. Adding or removing
new users and devices is very easy and can be done as required. This is
a far simpler process than it is with traditional phone lines.
