2022-09-05 13:18:12 […] A VoIP (Voice over IP) connection lets you make and receive phone calls over the internet as opposed to the traditional copper line phone network of the past 140 years.  VoIP is a cost-effective and future-proofed alternative to the traditional copper landlines being phased out as part of the 2025 #BigSwitchOff.  If you have a broadband internet connection, you can add on a VoIP phone service and make calls without the need for renting a line from a local phone service and without the need for additional wiring. So, you can simply plug in your digital VoIP handset and you’re ready to go. It’s really that simple. For more information and a full explanation of our products and services, read the blog “VoIP - everything you need to know” […] See more...

Re: VoIP – Everything You Need to Know
by What is the #BigSwitchOff and what does it mean for my phone line? - Country Connect

2022-06-24 06:02:43 […] Many people have already migrated to digital voice services or VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol). VoIP is a technology that allows you to make voice calls using a broadband Internet connection instead of the legacy (PTSN analog) phone lines of yesteryear.  As full fibre broadband is rolled out across the country customers are also being offered the option to ditch the traditional (PTSN) phone line altogether and make the move to VoIP in good time. Traditional phone services will continue to work for a couple of years but from 2023 they simply won't be available to new or current customers, and by December 2025 they will be withdrawn entirely. The switch from analogue phone lines to VoIP is coming so why wait?!  With a broadband connection it’s simple to add on VoIP services and keep your existing landline number. Here at Country Connect we offer VoIP services as a cost-effective add-on to your full fibre broadband upgrade. You can read more about our VoIP packages in this blog: VoIP - Everything You Need to Know . […] See more...
