National ‘Stop-Sell’ Day: Transitioning to SoGEA and FTTP for Seamless Connectivity

As the National Stop Sell Day on September 5th draws near, the telecommunications industry is gearing up for a significant change. On this crucial date, ordering new Wholesale Line Rental (WLR) or copper-based services will no longer be possible. Instead, the focus will shift towards modern, more efficient alternatives like Single Order Generic Ethernet Access (SoGEA) and Fiber to the Premises (FTTP). In this blog, we’ll explore what’s affected by this transition and why it is essential to act promptly to ensure a seamless experience for your customers.

Understanding the Stop Sell Initiative

The National Stop Sell Day marks a milestone in the UK telecommunications sector’s shift away from legacy copper-based services. Traditional copper lines, like WLR, have served the industry well for many years. However, advancements in technology and the increasing demand for faster and more reliable connections have made it necessary to embrace newer and more efficient solutions.

SoGEA and FTTP represent the future of telecommunications. SoGEA, a standalone broadband service, provides data-only connectivity without the need for a traditional phone line. On the other hand, FTTP delivers ultrafast internet speeds directly to the premises, offering an unparalleled user experience.

If you’re concerned about the changes and how they may impact your business, rest assured – we are here to help. Our team of experts is ready to assist you in navigating this transition and ensuring a smooth migration to SoGEA and FTTP services.

Moving Customers to SoGEA and FTTP:

These new services offer enhanced speed, reliability, and future-proof capabilities. By making the switch, your customers can enjoy seamless data connectivity without any interruptions, ultimately improving their overall digital experience.

Continuity of Voice Services:

While WLR and copper-based services may no longer be available, we can provide continuity of voice services over SoGEA and FTTP connections. Rest assured that you will still have access to essential voice communication features, ensuring your businesses can continue to operate smoothly.

We understand that cost concerns may arise when transitioning to new services. Our team is committed to minimizing the migration costs and making the process as cost-effective as possible for your business. We’ll work closely with you to find the best solutions that fit your budget without compromising on quality.
