ISDN Switch Off

Across the UK we are all waving good-bye to old-fashioned phone lines. Openreach has already started the PSTN  and ISDN  switch off with a deadline of 31st December 2025 for completion.

PSTN (Public Switched Technology Network) is the copper wire based telephone network and ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) is from the 1980s and delivers voice, video and other data. Neither are able to perform the quality needed in this digital age.
