Navigating the 2025 Switch Off as a UK Business

The evolution towards a fully digital communications network in the UK, known as The Big Switch
Off, is well underway. Tech IP is here to guide your organization through this transformative
journey, ensuring you not only meet the upcoming challenges but also capitalize on the
opportunities that lie ahead.

The Urgency of Action

Openreach has ceased selling many traditional communication services across the country,
signalling a critical phase in the transition. Waiting too long could jeopardize your current

Digital services based on SIP and VoIP are set to replace older PSTN networks, offering more
capacity, higher speeds, and a range of flexible features. Research suggests that over 20% of
businesses are at risk of being left behind, emphasizing the urgency for a proactive approach.

The Best Practice Plan for the Big Switch Off

In our best practice plan, we outline a five-step strategy to ensure your business is well-prepared for
The Big Switch Off. These steps cover auditing your current communications usage, understanding
legacy contract end dates, defining your future communications strategy, assessing next-gen
