Things to consider

This doesn’t just affect your telephone lines for voice calls.  You need to think about your broadband line, alarm lines, CCTV to name a few. 

All voice services will be switched off which could mean your telephone numbers will also be gone unless you move to a cloud service.

What’s your options for Telecoms?

SIP lines:

SIP is a cost-effective and flexible alternative to ISDN for your inbound and outbound voice calls.

Cloud Telephony Solution:

Individual telephone extensions are connected through your broadband to the Cloud (VoIP).  The telephones are hosted in the Cloud.  You don’t have a system onsite as its hosted offsite at a data centre. 

Wellwood Communications are working with businesses to provide these solutions.  Monthly costs for some customers have been reduced by up to 30%.
