    Are landlines being phased out?

    Landline phone technology in the UK is changing. Find out everything you need to know about landline services and what the upgrades mean for you.

    Why and when landlines are changing

    The technology and network we use to make landline phone calls is called the public switched telephone network (PSTN). This network is very old and difficult to repair and maintain. Some equipment and parts are no longer being manufactured, so it needs to be replaced. As part of a nationwide network upgrade, Openreach are now currently phasing out the old landline telephone system and this will be completely switched off in 2025.

    Will landlines be replaced?

    Landlines will be replaced with new digital technology, called Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). More friendly terms for the new technology is Digital Voice or Digital Phone.

    Digital Voice is a home phone service delivered through a broadband connection. The phone handset simply plugs into a broadband router.

    How will I know what’s happening with my landline?

    The upgrade is happening to ensure we all stay connected today and well into the future.

    If you have a landline service (with or without a broadband connection) your provider will contact you to let you know what’s changing and what your home phone options are.

    Broadband networks are also changing

    Openreach and other alternative network providers are also working on a broadband upgrade programme throughout the country. They’re rolling out the latest Full Fibre broadband technology, so we’ll all benefit from a new ultrafast network fit for the modern world. This new type of fibre broadband doesn’t need to use old landline technology to set up a connection.

    Plusnet packages are changing too

    With fewer customers using home phones and more relying on mobiles, we’ve decided to make things straightforward and offer broadband only without the landline. This means we can focus on what we do best – providing essential connectivity at great value with award-winning service.

    As the UK landline network starts to change, now might be the time to look at what you’re using. Mobiles are playing an ever-increasing role in how we connect, and with new features like WiFi calling which lets you call and text over broadband, your mobile could be all you really need.
