Your first step to an all-IP future

The UK Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) will be switched off in 2025, with some services affected as early as 2021.

The replacement products, referred to as “Single Order”, include Fibre to the Premise (FTTP) and Single Order Generic Ethernet Access (SOGEA).

SOGEA is currently the most widely available 2025 data product. It’s a cheap and reliable option, but speed of the service is affected by the distance between the premise and the exchange. Get in touch with our team to check if this option is right for you.
