As you know, the ISDN is soon to be retired which is currently delivering voice and data services across the UK. The technology is outdated and offers little to no flexibility. With these factors in place, the decision to switch off the ISDN was made final in 2017 with the switch off being fully complete in 2025.

Although this may seem daunting, the switch-off poses no threats to the technologically advanced modern world of voice and data. There are many alternatives to the IDSN meaning the future of your connectivity and your communications are in safe hands!

At Fuse 2 we pride ourselves on constantly working ahead of the curve meaning, we identified the benefits of ISDN alternatives long before the switch-off announcement. Our customers and partners have benefited from advanced connectivity services which have enabled them to enhance their communications landscape.

One of the main alternatives for telephone services using ISDN is FTTP lines, Fibre To The Premises. FTTP works by removing the outdated copper line linking from cabinets to the premises and replacing them with modern fibre lines. Traditionally, the fibre line was ran directly from the exchange to the cabinet which was then connected from the cabinet to the premises using copper lines.  This replacement will reform communications due to the leading benefits of fibre to the premise connectivity.

Fuse 2 can deliver this service with speeds ranging from 40 Mbps down / 10 Mbps, all the way up to 1000 Mbps down / 115 Mbps up. These speeds are a significant uplift when compared to FTTC (Fibre To The Cabinet) meaning you can benefit from faster speeds and higher bandwidth with prices starting from £35.
