The UK’s telephone network is changing
Copper wires and analogue signals have served our nation for over a century. They’ve kept hospitals, schools and emergency services connected, they’ve powered card machines on our high streets and delivered some of most important phone conversations we’ve ever had with our family and friends.
But, because it’s been around for a long time, it’s no longer as efficient as it could be. Replacement parts are hard to come by and, it fails more often than we’d like, meaning it doesn’t provide the world-class service that we need it to. This is why Openreach are retiring the analogue phone network at the end of 2025.
This means landline voice calls will soon be transmitted digitally – in the same way your broadband works. By modernising the telephone network, we’ll be able to do more than ever before, helping the UK to stay competitive on the global stage.
Types of telephone lines
Not everyone has the same telephone connection. There are 3 types of connections: analogue, calling via ADSL, ISDN and VoIP. The type of connection affects the number of calls you make simultaneously and the call quality.
With an ADSL connection you still call analogue, but in this case your telephone line is split into a telephone line and an internet connection. The advantage of an ADSL connection is that you can use the internet while calling. On the other hand, you still only have 1 telephone number and are therefore available for a single contact at the same time. This makes ADSL more often used at home than for business telephony.
ISDN is a digital connection with not 1 but 2 telephone lines, making it possible to use the Internet and make calls simultaneously. The number of telephone numbers that you link to this depends on which subscription you have taken out with your provider. On the other hand, ISDN is quite expensive, which means that usage has declined sharply. That is why ISDN stops. Do you want to know when you use this type of telephone line? Then contact your provider.
VoIP stands for Voice over IP, so internet telephony. Instead of calling via an analogue or digital line, you can call VoIP via the internet. This form of calling has the advantage that the call quality is better than with other lines. You also call against a lower fixed monthly amount. On the other hand, if you have a power failure, your telephone connection is out, because VoIP equipment is electric.
