End of the Line

Did you know, the year 2025 is set to see the end of the telephone line as we know it. BT Openreach has announced they are closing the copper wire telephone network across the UK for homes and businesses.

For over 20 years we have been using the traditional telephone network for our home and business calls, and more recently our internet. This network uses copper wires to transmit analogue and digital signals. More importantly it has also been used for security alarm signals. Traditional phone lines (PSTN) use a copper line to send the communication signal to the alarm monitoring company. The phone line is typically used by both the household and the alarm system.
