Stay ahead of the 2025 Switch Off with Voice One Essential

What is the BT 2025 switch off? The traditional public switched telephone network (PSTN) isn’t able to keep up with the ways of the modern world. And so, in a bid to move the UK to a digital future, it is set to be switched off in 2025. This means, every phone line in the UK will be moved to a modern network built on the internet. This will impact both households and businesses.

We aren’t the only country making the shift to digital. The Netherlands and Estonia have already moved to fully digital networks, and Germany, Japan and Sweden are on their way. Moving to a digital-first network enables greater mobility when it comes to voice communications, alongside better voice quality, reduced calling costs, and improved integrations with modern business applications.

Voice One Essential and the rest of our Voice One solutions are here to help your business address the change, providing simple, seamless digital voice services underpinned by the UK’s leading network. Get the flexibility and simplicity of a modern cloud voice solution and ensure your business is ready for the switch to digital networks.
