PSTN Switch Off – Is your business ready?
2023 has brought us ever closer to the shutdown of the UK’s PSTN network. Already, many exchanges no longer accept new orders for PSTN services and many providers are serving notice to customers that their telephone lines and broadband services will be withdrawn. There are a number of services that could be impacted so you need to think about:
🚨 Alarm monitoring 💳 Payment terminals 🗝️ Door entry systems 📠 Faxes 📹 CCTV
As this legacy copper network is gradually shut down, many businesses may already have made the move to VOIP services for making and receiving calls, however they may be running these services over an internet connection which is provided on a PSTN service that will ultimately be withdrawn.
