Why now is the time to consider SIP Trunking

It was revealed during the BT Group’s Q3 2014/15 results that BT intend to migrate all customers onto the IP network. It was announced that the switch-off date for the PSTN and ISDN networks is 2025.

As of August 2013, there were 3.2 million ISDN channels in the UK, and although not all of these belong to BT’s network, a significant number of ISDN customers now have a date from which their telephony will no longer be in service.

The move is no longer a matter of ‘if’ but ‘when’ and with Pennine bringing the latest offers to help their customer’s migrate to FTTC and IP Voice, it seems now is the ideal time to make the switch.

Pennine are offering 12months free rental of FTTC rental when taken in conjunction with at least 8 SIP trunks in a 36 month contract*.

What is SIP Trunking?

SIP trunking is the fastest growing telephony service in the UK. SIP trunks connect your site directly via an IP connection, terminating your inbound and outbound voice calls across the public telephone network.

What are the advantages of SIP Trunking?

SIP has many advantages, and is a cost-effective alternative to ISDN, providing flexibility and business continuity. Because SIP trunking is an IP-based telephony service, you also get number flexibility, which gives you a whole host of other added benefits that can solve real business issues.

FTTC and SIP migration offers

In conjunction with 12 months free rental of FTTC, Pennine are also offering free calls to UK fixed destinations, including 01, 02 and 03 number ranges, as well as most UK mobile 07 numbers. We currently offer free install** for FTTC worth £80 and CallGuard protection from unusual usage included free of charge with all our SIP trunks.

With this huge range of promotions on offer, and our free FTTC rental offer expiring at the end of the year (31st December 2015), now is the best time to make the switch and upgrade to FTTC and SIP trunking.
