Openreach is set to retire the technology supporting landline telephones in the UK, with a phased rollout starting in 2023 and full decommissioning stated for 2025. This transition comes in response to the growing prevalence of mobile phone usage and internet-based video calling, leading to a decline in traditional phone line usage.
Simultaneously, Openreach is channelling investments into cutting-edge broadband systems and connections harnessing the latest in fibre optic technology. This advanced infrastructure eliminates the need for the aging copper-wire landline network.
These transformative shifts in phone and broadband technology will impact all broadband service providers, not limited to just Home Telecom. The great news for our customers opting for the Fibre package is that there’s no requirement for a traditional phone line. This means you’re future-proofed, plus you won’t have to shoulder the costs of line rental or a phone service that goes unused.
Fibre represents a broadband-exclusive package, harnessing a fresh type of connection that eliminates the need for a phone line service.
It’s a streamlined package designed to ensure your seamless connectivity. What makes it even more appealing is that you receive your optimum available speeds, all neatly bundled into a single, uncomplicated pricing structure.
Similarly, Full Fibre is also a broadband-only offering, obviating the necessity for a phone line service. This package leverages the latest in fiber technology, establishing a direct connection to your residence.
