Dear Customers,

You may be aware of the great switch off and many businesses are panicking. Panic no more!

As the UK prepares for Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) to be switched off, WorldNet have successfully made the transition for many businesses over the years. But time is running out and as you will all agree, time is passing by very quickly. In fact, reflect on 2020 and 2021. Where did it go? We are about to enter 2022 and that too will fly past.

WorldNet has the solution for your communications needs, no matter how small, no matter how big. We can create bespoke solutions to cater for your communications needs.


In case you missed the news on the switch off!

In 2025, the phone lines as we know them are going to be switched off by BT Openreach, which means EVERYONE, including businesses, currently using PSTN based services will need to move to another service before then.

WorldNet have alternatives like Hosted or Cloud based system, Voice over Internet Protocol also known as VoIP and more. Solutions that allow you to make calls using an internet connection.
