Openreach withdrawal of copper-based voice lines
The UK’s telephone network is changing after a century

First things first, don’t panic. Everyone will be have to make the move to a VoIP Digital Cloud telephone solution anyway, so this is your chance to get ahead of the game. As reported in the National Press and the BBC, Openreach is withdrawing ALL copper-based voice telephone lines from the UK’s network on December 31st 2025, as the network will reach its end of life.
 
Openreach has already switched off over 500 exchanges where voice copper lines are no longer available, and this is increasing monthly with a further 1.4 million customers affected in October 2021, and from September 2023 Openreach will issue a national full “Stop Sell” of any new supply of voice copper-based telephone connections, including new line installations, changing of addresses, stopped line restarts and working line takeovers. Meaning some 47 million (Openreach data 2020) lines will need to migrate to a new internet voice-based service. ALL businesses and residential services ARE affected by this change.
After the 31st of December any customers still using copper-based lines for their telephone service, and in some cases existing broadband services, will find their service/s will no longer work. Customers that have not migrated their current telephone service to the new VoIP alternative service by this date will lose voice service, along with their telephone number.

NEW Cloud VoIP Telephone deals for businesses. Telephone and Broadband deals.
SoGEA stands for Single Order Generic Ethernet Access (SoGEA) and is a product that enables users to make telephone calls (VoIP/SIP) using a special router or telephone over the internet without the need for a copper-based voice phone line.
 
It works remarkably like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger but lets you still use your existing standard telephone handset, and you make calls in the same way as you do now. We also own and operate our own VoIP telephone network and platforms (Similar to TalkTalk and Virgin), and have telecom switches based in Bournemouth, London, Amsterdam, and Strasbourg. And been operating VoIP services across the EU for the last 12 years.
 
We can provide a new IP Cloud VoIP telephone line with a new number or move your current copper-based telephone number into our VoIP Cloud network, and then provide a bandwidth internet-based voice service for making phone calls. You can have just enough broadband for the telephone service, or you can have from 40Mbps up to a whopping 1,000Mbps Internet feed.

Fibre FTTC/FTTP Broadband speeds
Our IP Cloud phone service with Broadband comes with a 40/10 fibre broadband service. This can be FTTC or FTTP depending on the services listed at your exchange. Most small businesses do not need more than this speed. However, we also offer other Fibre speeds from 80Mbps up to a whooping 1000 Mbps (Gigabit) broadband feed. But please contact us if you feel the need for more speed.
FTTC Broadband speed can be affected by the quality of your phone line, how far your business is from the telephone exchange or cabinet in the street where you are. If the wiring in at your business is old, electrical interference from things like TV's and Microwaves, as well as how many people are using the sites you're visiting or quantity of devices connected to the router at the business itself. We'll run a check on both your telephone number and postcode to give you a personalised estimate of the speeds you can expect to receive from your broadband service once connected. It may take up to two weeks from the date of installation for the speed of your Broadband Service to stabilize. All speeds are measured up to the router, and not based on WiFi speed tests. FTTP is a direct fibre into the business, so your speed should not be affected by the distance from the exchange or cabinet in the street.
Changing Broadband speed and service type
As your business grows or the local exchange is updated to faster speeds, it is possible to change your service to something much faster. This will all depend on what services are available at the local exchange. There may also be a cost involved in change services. For example, moving from FTTC to a full FTTP services, as this will need a new installation into the address. Please contact our team for more information.
Automatic divert on inbound calls when unreachable or power cut
If you have opted to have your inbound calls diverted to another telephone number, then the cost for calling this number will be charged at your call plans advertised call cost. Unless the call is included in the call plan. This is an opt-in service, so please let our team know if you wish to have this set up for you. Please note - this service cannot be used as a replacement to a divert on demand service.

Businesse Digital Cloud VoIP telephone Frenquently asked questions

Can I keep my businesses telephone number?
Yes, we can move 99% of telephone numbers - Most businesses have had their telephone number for years, and for a lot of businesses keeping their telephone number is a must. Unlike most providers, we run our own telephone network and platforms (Similar to TalkTalk and Virgin), and have telecom switches based in Bournemouth, London, Amsterdam, and Strasbourg in France, as well as using BT Openreach lines. So regardless of if you're moving the business, to a different part of the country, or even a different part of the world, we have the technology that will allow you to always be able to take your business phone number with you.
Do I need to contact my current provider?
No, you won't need to contact your current provider - we'll do that for you. Once we have placed your order your current provider will send you a letter or email just to let you know that your telephone number is transferring to us. Once the transfer is completed your old provider will send a final bill to you for anything outstanding. Just make sure you are out of contract.
Can I move my VoIP telephone number to different provider?
Yes, however the provider you are looking to move to will be responsible for this process. Customers that have ported their telephone number out of the Simple Telecoms network to another provider will not be eligible for a free of charge port back to the Simple Telecoms network until a term of 24 months has passed from the original port out date, regardless of any current or future offers being advertised in the press or Simple Telecoms websites. Should you wish to return to us within 24 months of leaving, there would be a cost to so. There is also a small admin cost to port the number out to a different provider of 19.99 plus VAT.
Can I have a second line on the same service?
Yes, we can set up the router/ATA with a second line and telephone number, this could be used for an alarm system or PDQ payment unit. However, you may need to return the router to us for programming if you do not request this before the new router/ATA is sent to you. Please contact us on 0330 122 0000 for more information.
If there is a power cut how can I still use the telephone?
You can purchase a Battery Back Up for your router/ATA and the ONT in the case of a FTTP feed, which will keep the units powered for about one hour, dependent on the unit. However, this will not provide power to other devices like your handset or PDQ units. This means customers will need to provide their own Battery Back Up arrangements for these devices. If you would like help with this, please call us on 0330 122 0000 Monday to Friday 9AM to 5PM
Can I have just a broadband service without the telephone service?
Unfortunately, we do not offer a standalone broadband only service. If you do not wish to use the telephone side, simply don’t connect the telephone to the router or ATA. The monthly rental will remain the same regardless.
