Is your school ready to switch to a VoIP phone system?

March 19, 2019

In 2020, BT will start its 5-year programme to switch off traditional analogue and ISDN networks. Schools will need to switch to a digital phone system such as VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) to stay connected – so is your school ready?


What is a VoIP phone system?


VoIP allows you to make phone calls using your school’s broadband rather than through a traditional phone line. Not only do VoIP systems deliver a fantastic range of features, but you can save up to 40% on your phone bills!

You don’t need to change your phone number to switch to a VoIP system, and by moving now you’ll get a great deal on a system that will futureproof your school.
