Using a landline phone for VoIP

Over the last few years, British Telecom has been warning businesses and householders about “The Big Switch Off”. This event is set to take place towards the end of 2025 when BT will switch off all analog and ISDN telephone lines in the UK. The intention behind these warnings is to push all users of traditional phone lines to switch to VoIP or mobile services before the cut-off date.

This major event that’s coming up is a good enough reason to make the switch as early as possible!

Here’s how you can easily convert your traditional landline phone into a VoIP phone without the hassle or expense of investing in a new phone system:

A landline phone can be converted into a VoIP phone using a VoIP adapter. A VoIP adapter is a bridge to link analog technology with the digital network. The VoIP adapter is a converter to allow digital (IP) calls to come through. It’s called an Analog Telephone Adapter (ATA) or phone adapter.

VoIP phone adapters make the cost-savings of VoIP accessible to anyone without having to replace the existing analog telephony equipment. They are generally priced to be affordable for the average work-at-home or remote office user. There are various types of adapters for differing requirements.

Adapters such as the Grandstream HT801 is a powerful analog telephone adapter that is easily deployable and manageable.
