Prepared for the BT PSTN Switch Off

Prepared for the PSTN Switch Off?

Are you ready for the UK and Ireland PSTN Switch Off coming in 2025? Get a head start and futureproof your business today.

the UK and Ireland is set to switch off PSTN and ISDN networks by 2025, meaning that any business phone or service reliant on the old analogue network will be discontinued. This transition will impact numerous businesses, particularly those unaware of plans to phase out this outdated technology.

Traditional PSTN phone lines come with high maintenance costs and various limitations. In essence, due to the impending  PSTN Switch Off, starting from September 5, 2023, the option to order new traditional PSTN services will cease, and by 2025, a complete migration to IP telephony will be imperative to maintain uninterrupted telephone services.
