Over the next few years there will be a widespread migration to internet-only broadband connections such as Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) where there is no underlying phone line service.
This migration will be completed by December 2025 when the traditional phone network that is based on copper cabling is scheduled to be switched off.
Businesses that need to continue with an office phone service and keep their existing phone number will need to switch to an internet phone service.
This applies to businesses that have only one or two phone lines and also to businesses that have multi-user office phone systems.
Internet phone services are often referred to as VoIP or digital phone services.
Premitel Internet Phone Service
The Premitel internet phone service is low-cost and feature-rich and is the ideal replacement for analogue and ISDN phone systems before the 2025 switch-off.
It is also perfect for small businesses that may have only one or two phone lines as it is not only a more flexible solution than exiting lines, but also costs less than existing phone lines.
Unlike most other internet service providers, Premitel offer a managed service so that you don’t need to worry about configuring the phone system.
As part of the monthly service charge we would undertake the initial configuration according to your requirements and would make any subsequent changes that are necessary to reflect your changing operational requirements.
Feature Rich and Flexible
The Premitel internet phone service is a cloud based service that offers all the features that you would expect on a standard office phone system such as call transfer, voicemail and auto-attendant.
It also offers many features that are ideal for the new way of working including:
- roaming extension numbers (in the office, at home & on the move);
- Microsoft Teams integration; and
- Smartphone and PC desktop app.
Our phone service can replace your existing on-site office phone system and/or your analogue and ISDN phone lines and can be tailored to suit the needs and budget of most types of business from self-employed home workers to businesses with large multi-site operations.
No Minimum Contract
Unlike most other VoIP Phone services there is no minimum contract period. The whole service or any part of the service can be ceased at any time at the end of the current billing month.
A free trial of the service is available if required.
Supports a Wide Range of Phones
Because smartphone and desktop PC or laptop apps are included as part of the service it is not necessary to buy any new phones to start using the Premitel VoIP phone service. However, most businesses would typically require conventional desk phones or cordless phones.
The Premitel internet phone service is an open system to which any VoIP phone that supports the SIP standard can connect. This means that there are a wide range of phones to choose from including desk phones and cordless phones.
VoIP phones are available from £40 plus vat.
We also offer an adaptor for £55 plus vat that enables existing analogue phones to be used over standard telephone wiring.
Premitel will ensure that making the switch to our internet phone service is as painless as possible.
We will handle the transfer of existing phone numbers and configure the service and the phones to meet your specific requirements.
In the unlikely event that our service does not meet your requirements you can easily switch to anther provider by migrating your phone number(s) to your new provider.
Flexible Service Packages
We offer a range of flexible service packages that can be tailored to suit the requirements of all types of end-user from individual home workers to large businesses with multi-site offices and branches.
Our basic homeworker package starts at £5.00 plus vat per month.
For larger businesses we would tailor our service package to meet the specific requirements of the business.
For example, we can offer leasing packages in which the monthly lease payment charge includes the cost of the telephone equipment and the service.
Our monthly service charge includes operational support and reasonable configuration changes to match the changing requirements of your business.
