Preparing for the 2025 Switch-Off

In this blog, we'll delve into the upcoming switch-off of traditional landlines in the UK and how Here's The Plan can aid businesses in adapting to this change.

Traditional landlines have been a backbone of business communication in the UK for years, but their days are numbered. By 2025, these copper-wired landlines will be discontinued, presenting both challenges and opportunities for businesses.

Traditional landlines, known for their reliability, are being phased out due to:

  1. Cost and Maintenance: Maintaining these aging systems is increasingly costly.
  2. Limited Features: They lack the features needed for modern business communication.
  3. Environmental Impact: Their production and disposal have significant environmental drawbacks.
  4. Population Shift: Businesses are embracing mobile and internet-based alternatives.
