PSTN is shutting down – act now!

In 2025 the telephone network will change forever. The Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN for short) is the traditional form of  communications dating back to the early 1900s.  The PSTN became a vast network of copper owned and operated by British Telecom.  However, as with many things, the technology has moved on.

Internet based calls and improvements in technology have made this old style of network largely redundant. It is no longer being sold and by 2025 the network is being shut off for good.

What does it mean for your business?  If you are still on ISDN or analogue lines then you will need to move your services to SIP. As this date draws nearer, there will inevitably be a high demand to switch over to this service and so it is best to be prepared and get in early.
