Openreach is the company that looks after most of the phone and broadband networks for homes and businesses in the UK.
They’ve decided to upgrade this network by 2025.
This is partly driven by the fact that the current network is really old, in some cases, the technology people are using to make calls on is over a century old! Parts and skills are becoming scarce. You read more about the plans on Openreach’s website – Upgrading the UK to Digital Phone Lines.
Openreach’s intention is to force a country-wide digital upgrade. That’s great news for pretty much everyone because digital is better!
Your phone and broadband suppliers should be talking to you about upgrading your phone system and internet connection, so you’re no longer relying on the old network.
If you’re thinking about upgrading to a cloud-based phone system or switching your internet connection, talk to your service provider about eve. Otherwise, share your details and we’ll put you in touch with someone who can help.
