We want to bring your attention to a significant change that will impact the way we communicate in the coming years. As technology continues to evolve rapidly, the telecommunications industry has been gradually transitioning away from traditional systems towards more advanced and efficient methods of communication.
It is with this in mind that we must inform you of the impending switch off of the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) scheduled for the year 2025. The PSTN, which has been the backbone of our landline phone services for decades, will be retired to make way for modern, internet-based communication technologies.
What does this mean for you?
- End of Traditional Landline Services: With the PSTN switch off, traditional landline phone services will no longer be available. This includes both residential and business landline connections that rely on the PSTN infrastructure.
- Transition to VoIP and Digital Services: Communication services will increasingly rely on Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and digital platforms for voice calls. VoIP offers numerous advantages such as cost-effectiveness, flexibility, and integration with other digital services.
- Improved Connectivity: The transition away from PSTN will pave the way for improved connectivity and enhanced communication experiences. With internet-based technologies, users can expect better call quality, reliability, and innovative features.
- Prepare for the Change: We encourage individuals and businesses to start preparing for this transition by exploring alternative communication solutions. This may involve adopting VoIP services, utilizing mobile networks, or leveraging digital communication platforms.
- Support and Assistance: We understand that transitions like these can be challenging, especially for those who have relied on traditional landline services for many years. Rest assured, our team is here to provide support and assistance throughout this process. We will work closely with you to ensure a smooth transition to new communication technologies.
As we move towards a digital future, we remain committed to providing reliable and efficient communication services to meet the evolving needs of our community. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this transition period.
