This is also an opportunity for customers to take advantage of our wide range of VoIP and fibre-based broadband solutions ahead of the upcoming WLR Switch-off 2025.

What is the WLR Switch-off in 2025?
BT Openreach can no longer support the ageing network, which means that PSTN (public switched telephone network) and ISDN (integrated services digital network) will be removed from service by December 2025. However, in some parts of the country, services are already being switched off with many more exchanges being added to the stop/sell programme as part of the switch-off.

Why do businesses need to act now?
The PSTN Switch-off is happening, and it’s happening now. Organisations must be prepared in advance of the switch-off. If we all wait until 2025, the resources within BT and other providers will not be able to meet the demand for the support required. For many businesses, more is at stake than just phones and Internet.

The upcoming changes to the UK communications infrastructure could easily put the wider workings of a business at risk. This impacts everything from card machines to emergency alarms, lifts, entry systems and much more. The sooner they act, the better prepared their business will be for the migration to a fully digital network.
