Why it’s time to upgrade your business phone system

BT Openreach has announced it intends to switch off traditional landlines in 2025. This is commonly referred to as the Public Switch Telephone Network (PSTN) and Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) switch off.

4 reasons to switch before the 2025 switch off

  • Lower Costs

    Calls are cheaper on VoIP compared to traditional phone lines.

  • Higher Scalability

    One of the biggest advantages of VoIP is scalability. Ideal for businesses eyeing expansion.

  • Multitasking

    Hold conference calls and send videos, photos and documents in the middle of the conversation.

  • Accessibility

    Make calls from anywhere using any device. If you’re unavailable you can direct your incoming calls to someone else.
