Learn about SOGEA, the future of broadband connectivity, in this quick-read, all-you-need-to-know guide
Up until now, in order to deliver broadband to your business premises, you needed to have a traditional phone line installed and then ADSL or fibre broadband provided on top of it. But that’s all about to change with Single Order Generic Ethernet Access (SOGEA), which enables the ordering of Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) without needing a phone line, making the whole process a whole lot simpler – and quicker.
As you will no doubt be aware, all traditional phone and business ISDN lines will be switched off and withdrawn from service by the end of 2025. And with that deadline looming, businesses currently relying on single analogue or ISDN for their broadband will need to migrate to a non-PSTN service, such as SOGEA.
More than just the latest in a long line of telecoms-based acronyms, SOGEA, along with the PSTN and ISDN switch-off, brings with it another major shakeup to UK telecoms.
But why exactly do you need it? How does it work? And at what point do you need to be thinking about it? We spell all that out for you and more in our latest quick-read, all-you-need-to-know guide.
