Upgrade to a Cloud-based VoIP solution before the big BT switch off!

Well, it’s finally happening – landlines will become a thing of the past and, as with many other forms of technology that are changing at lightning speed, this will happen in the next few years.

This is a wake-up call for the over 2 million businesses in the UK still using ISDN and PSTN systems. These are already no longer available to purchase, and BT have announced that they will do a complete switch by 2025.

One industry news provider put it this way, “BT has announced that it’s going ahead with plans that would see its existing public switched telephone network (PSTN) shut down in favour of having all phone calls be made using VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol, or cloud phone) systems.” 

There is sound reasoning behind this in terms of BT remaining abreast of telecommunications technology changes. Catering to what, in recent times, has become public demand for a switch to Cloud-based VoIP systems. It simply makes sense therefore to upgrade to a Cloud-based VoIP solution before the big BT switch off!

The benefits of the switch 

Feeling forced into the change? It is worth bearing in mind the numerous benefits to the UK, BT itself, businesses, schools, and other institutions if a VoIP system is introduced.

BT will no longer have to maintain the archaic existing network, allowing them to concentrate time and spend on our broadband system. This focus on broadband and the creation of faster fibre will in turn benefit VoIP, which will benefit everyone. 

Benefits of a Cloud-based system

Cloud-based VoIP has even more distinct advantages in the form of:

  • Predictable costs  – allowing businesses to budget more accurately.
  • Cost savings – on free mobile calls locally, nationally and in the UK. No expensive setups of onsite hardware to buy or maintain and no costly general maintenance charges.
  • Working remotely – Plug the phone into any internet connection and it works just as it does in the office. Your extension number and direct dial numbers work as if you’re in the office. Your outbound calls also dial out from you school or business number.
