What will this mean for you?
In November 2017 BT announced the analogue switch off and the digital switch off meaning that by the close of 2025 all ISDN Digital Services will be shut down by Openreach. Before then, all users will have had to make alternative arrangements for their telephony.
Notices called ‘Stop Sell’ have been announced in two trial areas from 1st December 2020. Meaning that from 12 months later no new ISDN services can be ordered.
Stop Sell notices are also planned for 117 other areas commencing 29th June 2021.
‘Stop Sell’ for the rest of the UK is planned for September 2023.Get In Touch
What will this mean for you?
It may mean nothing will change at all depending on what you are already using.
It may mean that your current phone lines need changing to ‘Cloud Lines’ (SiP); your phone system may need some additional equipment or a possible software upgrade.
It may be that your current system and handsets are not able to connect to ‘Cloud Telephony’ in which case you will need to consider changing to a cloud PBX.
On most occasions, a move from ISDN to a hosted telephone system can bring significant cost savings and feature benefits so it is worth considering an upgrade now rather than leaving it to the last minute.Find Out More

We were recently recommended Time Communications when wanting to change/upgrade our telephone system in a large Primary School. From the first interaction they have been fantastic. Extremely knowledgeable, extremely efficient, had some good advice on getting us set up quickly and then had us up and running in no time! Would highly recommend.
Both Nick and Sam did a great job and we very grateful that they managed to find a route up to the upstairs room, whilst cabling.
People were very impressed with the installation and how tidy they left the place.
From the initial enquiry through to the final installation, everything was delivered in a professional manner on time and with a very cost effective solution.
1st class service from Time Communications and especially Tom.
Everything I asked him to do, was done quickly and exactly how we needed it.
Thank you Tom!

I feel the services we receive from Time are excellent value for money. The whole team have excellent customer service skills and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to others.

What a fantastic service we have had from Time – a completely new system was required as part of the office relocation . From the advice and planning by Jeff and the implementation by the whole team it was faultless and stress free. There has been no disruption to our business and we look forward to enjoying the benefits of the new system . We cannot thank you enough!
