Premitel have been providing internet connectivity solutions and services for our customers ever since internet access became widely available in the late 1990s.
In recent years we have added to that experience by assisting many customers with the migration to fibre broadband and internet phone services.
Over the next few years there will be an accelerated migration to Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) internet-only broadband connections in homes and businesses across the Scottish Borders.
Internet Phone Service
In parallel with the migration to fibre broadband, the traditional phone network that is based on copper cabling will be phased out by December 2025 and will be replaced by internet phone services.
End-users who wish to continue with a “landline” phone service and keep their existing phone numbers will need to connect to an internet phone service.
They will also need new internet phones or an adaptor that will enable connection of their existing phones.
Internet phones and services are often referred to as VoIP, which is short for Voice over Internet Protocol.
It is also increasingly common for VoIP phones to be referred to as digital phones.
Keep Your Existing Phone Number
It is certainly possible to keep your existing phone number(s) when transferring to a VoIP internet phone service.
However, at present the process is not without pitfalls which could result in you being stuck with an unsuitable phone service or even losing your phone number(s).
If you are based in the Scottish Borders then you can avoid these pitfalls by calling on Premitel to guide you through the process of upgrading to fibre broadband and migrating to an internet phone service.
Our local support is particularly valuable for homes and businesses that have more complex requirements and would include as needed:
- initial site visit to establish requirements;
- liaison with service providers;
- configuration of equipment and service to meet requirements;
- on site installation and commissioning;
- face-to-face user training; and
- on-going support which includes re-configuring equipment and service to meet any changes to the operational requirements of business
Unlike other service providers, Premitel don’t just deliver the equipment and leave you to get on with it with little or no support!
