The future of the traditional phone line
If you’re making do with ISDN phone lines with your business at the moment, you’re missing out on a cheaper, more resilient and futureproof alternative.
SIP (Session Inanimation Protocol) trunks are virtual phone lines that use your broadband connection to connect your PBX (business phone system) to the traditional phone network. This will become the new standard for phone lines when BT switches off the ISDN network in 2025.
SIP trunks allow you to choose any geographic telephone number – ideal for local marketing campaigns, and they’re much more reliable than ISDN lines which can be hit-and-miss in terms of call quality. They also cost less overall per connection.
Why have SIP trunking?

Choose numbers from any UK area code – great for local marketing campaigns.
Retain your numbers, avoid missed calls and avoid call forwarding costs if you relocate your business.
If your business is seasonal or expanding, you can scale voice channels up or down instantly.
Save up to 50% on line rentals and 25% or more on call costs compared to traditional ISDN.
Reroute calls to an alternative location quickly and easily if the unexpected happens.
No need to panic if you notice unusual usage - you’re covered for fraud at no extra cost.
With lots more available bandwidth, sound quality is much better than through ISDN.
