The analogue telephone line (or Landline) underpins 90% of broadband connections in the UK and everyone will need to move!
The PSTN and ISDN switch off will impact everyone. All analogue and ISDN connections will have to be changed out by 2025 regardless of whether you agree with it or not. The market is changing, and the rollout is well underway with 77 telephone exchanges on stop-sell which means no more WLR (analogue line) services can be provided. SoGEA from Juice Broadband is a direct replacement for analogue line voice services and ensures that our customers who rely on their voice services will not lose the ability to make and receive calls. We use VoIP technology to enable telephone services over your Broadband connection.
Here are some key bullet points and terminology you should be aware of;
SoGEA – Single Order Generic Ethernet Access – A dedicated line to deliver broadband services, without any ability to carry telephone voice traffic.
2025 will see all PSTN & ISDN services being switched off, SoGEA will be the replacement
PSTN – Public Switched Telephone Network (Analogue line or landline as it is often called – a single line allowing 1 concurrent phone call and also used to deliver copper broadband services to your property via the street cabinet)
