Fit to Switch
Fit to Switch is here to help UK PLC & Citizens understand how to take advantage of the BT switch-off in 2025. Are you fit to switch?
The BT-owned UK wide copper-based telephone network is being retired. BT proposes that as of December 2025, all UK telephony will be digital-only, and carried over a fibre-only network.
The implications may be profound for many businesses. Particularly around some of the hard-wired but seldom considered internal infrastructure like:
- lift lines,
- fax machines,
- card payment machines
- alarm systems
- hard-wired back up systems…
Many of which may have been in place, installed by third-party suppliers and running unremarked in the background, for decades -- to the extent that neither the business owners nor their present telecoms or broadband suppliers may not even be aware of them.
The switch-off is coming. Will your business be Fit To Switch?
