BT Network switch off

In 2025, BT and Openreach will be switching off the PSTN and ISDN telephone networks. This means that all businesses in the UK will have to switch to IP telephony in the next few years. 8×8 is an ideal solution to this change in infrastructure and offers a number of added benefits for your business.

Our cloud telephony experts can help advise on the best cloud based systems for your business and work with you to formalise a clear migration plan to avoid interruptions and improve your business communications.

Client logo - Sprague Gibbons

“Alliance Communications have been our cloud telephony supplier for many years. We previously had an on premise telephone system, which was difficult to support. Alliance provided an excellent service in presenting the options available and then delivering and managing a cloud telephone solution that perfectly matched our needs.”
