Warning: danger ahead

Politicians just take it for granted. Ofcom, the regulator, isn’t making a fuss about it. Openreach, the network owner, is not planning to raise awareness of it to business customers and consumers. Telecoms resellers all have a different attitude to it. Business users don’t get it. Consumers are largely unaware or confused. All the while, the clock is ticking

You may have heard about the telephone switch-off and also read many conflicting, scaremongering and sensationalised stories, which to be frank, most simply don’t believe.

Get the facts. We will send you the “2 Things” information fact sheet. It has been created by independent business development experts Larato, made availble to us to publish via our membership of Fit To Switch . The fact sheet’s aim is to help companies navigate their way successfully through the switch-off.

  • The first thing from this one page, you will now know the key facts.
  • The second thing from this second page, you will have a simple, clear action plan to follow.

Larato has worked with OpenReach to produce this checklist and simple action plan.

Follow the advice and your phones, and systems connected to them, probably won’t go completely dead.

PLUS will also include the two questions that most VOIP providers dread you asking, will probably evade, not wishing to answer them, and why.

And yes, we hope a few of you will come back to us for some further free trusted advice and possibly then, at the right time for you, to enquire into the various solutions that will not only keep you open but also deliver business advantages.

Either way, make sure that you are ready.

Quite Useful Information

A SIP line, also known as a SIP trunk, is a type of communication channel that uses Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) to establish and manage voice, video, and other real-time communications over the internet.

Unlike traditional telephone lines that are physical lines that carry a single call at a time, SIP lines use internet connection to carry multiple calls simultaneously. SIP lines are often used by businesses as a more cost-effective and scalable alternative to traditional phone lines.

A SIP line requires an internet connection and a VoIP-enabled phone system or PBX (Private Branch Exchange) to manage and route calls. With a SIP trunk, businesses can add or remove phone lines as needed, and only pay for the channels they use, making it a flexible and cost-effective solution for businesses of all sizes
