What is the PSTN switch off?

In 2017 BT announced their intentions to turn off PSTN (telephone lines) network by December 2025.

This means the traditional phone systems and lines currently being used, will no longer operate after 2025.

This is due to the increased reliability and quality of broadband services over the last decade. Our digital voice services are now able to operate in place of the aging PSTN infrastructure, whilst providing more benefits and features to our customers.

How does this affect me?

Your copper services will be switched off in the lead up to December 2025, to ensure a seamless transition, we would recommend making the switch in advance.

In most instances, we can retain your existing telephone number and provide additional features and benefits to you, so you are not missing out.
