Home VoIP setup

IT support from jps IT Hemel Hempstead

The UK is preparing for a huge technological change. At the end of 2025, the ‘analogue’ network, which we have used to make phone calls from landlines since the start of the phone network, will reach the end of its life. A new digital phone network is taking its place that uses the internet to make calls. This means that, if you have not already done so, you will need to switch your business to a VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) phone system.

At jps IT ltd, we offer seamless VoIP setup services, enabling you to use your existing landline phone number for VoIP calls. Whether you’re a family looking to modernise your communication setup or a small business aiming to enhance efficiency, our VoIP solutions cater for your needs.

What is VoIP?

VoIP is technology that allows you to make phone calls over the internet instead of the  traditional copper phone lines provided by companies like BT. This means your calls are transmitted digitally, leading to clearer audio quality and often lower costs compared to traditional landline services.

When should I switch to VoIP?

At the end of 2025, the old system will be switched off so that is the ultimate deadline. However, you can make the switch any time before then and there are several benefits to using VoIP right now. BT has already stopped selling analogue phone lines to new customers.

The benefits of VoIP

Cheaper calls

VoIP can be much cheaper than traditional analog systems. This is because IP-based systems use only one network connection and a single phone line, which makes them much more cost-effective than conventional analog systems.

Modern, Gigaset cordless telephones

Experience freedom and flexibility with Gigaset cordless telephones, which seamlessly integrate with our VoIP setup. Enjoy crystal-clear calls and mobility around your home without being tethered to a landline socket.

Clearer voice quality

VoIP offers a higher quality of voice than traditional telephone services because it takes advantage of the speed and flexibility of the internet. In comparison to a traditional phone line, VoIP’s sound quality is clear & crisp.

Enhanced calling features

The features that come with VoIP services are much better than those offered by traditional phone lines. You’ll have more flexibility in terms of call management, voicemail, extra-virtual numbers, contact lists, caller IDs, and many more.

Use you mobile phone or computer for VoIP calls

Transform your mobile phone into a portable VoIP device, allowing you to make and receive calls using your existing home phone number from anywhere with an internet connection, using the Acrobits softphone app.

Alternatively, you can use your computer’s microphone or headset to make or receive calls using  suitable desktop computer software.
