Frequently Asked Questions - Business Phone Lines

To help you, we’ve put together some of the most FAQs from our customers regarding which business phone lines are right for them. You should find all the answers to your questions below or if you already know what you need and would just like to find out about costs, then please follow the link to our contact us form and one of our team will be in touch soon.

We provide a full range of business phone lines and calls packages. From traditional telephone calls and line rental tariffs to VoIP phone lines using the internet. Many businesses are now turning from a traditional landline phone system to a hosted VoIP solution for their business, as it increases business communication efficiency, is feature-rich, flexible and cost-effective.  VoIP phone systems can offer businesses many benefits over regular phone service. Monthly costs can be reduced significantly and they allow calls to be placed from any location with a computer and an internet connection.

By switching your line rental to Tech Advance, you can enjoy lower bills along with the convenience of getting your line rental and call charges on a single monthly bill. All our rates are very competitive to all chargeable call destinations including International and all calls are billed by the second with no rounding up and no minimum call charge of call set up charges like with some other providers. We have no complicated call plans, ensuring you know exactly what you are paying for all of the time on your business phone lines.

VoIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol. VoIP works by converting your voice into digital data and sending it through your internet connection. So instead of your voice passing through traditional business phone lines, it passes through your router instead. To take full advantage of VoIP’s capabilities, businesses will deploy SIP trunks.

SIP Trunks (Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) trunking) are the physical connections that provide voice service to your phone system. They are a powerful, scalable and highly flexible form of telephony that connect your premises directly to the Public Telephone Network (PSTN) via IP/broadband.  SIP Trunks provide a flexible and low-cost alternative to ISDN for inbound and outbound voice calls. One of the most significant advantages of SIP trunking is its ability to combine data, voice and video in a single line, eliminating the need for separate lines of physical media. The result is reduced overall cost and enhanced reliability for these services.

SIP trunking and VoIP technology share many similar parallels but whereas VoIP carries voice, SIP can carry all forms of media.

This will depend on the property, the type of business phone lines and the local BT Openreach engineering lead times. We advise that you allow up to 6 weeks to provide adequate time for overcoming any problems that may occur, however, we can sometimes have new business phone lines fitted in less than 5 working days.

Reducing costs is one of the main reasons that businesses choose to switch to VoIP and cloud type services. The cost savings involved with office VoIP phone systems are significant. With minimal hardware to buy upfront, no maintenance costs and monthly call charges all-inclusive, it doesn’t matter if you’re a small business or a 500-person enterprise spread across many offices, VoIP phone systems are extremely flexible and customisable to meet the needs of your business.  Our business phone lines rental plans include free calls to UK landlines and mobiles, with the latest phones offering many sophisticated features at no extra charge, making VoIP even more attractive.

Earlier this year BT announced their intention to switch off the ISDN telephone networks by 2025. This means that customers will need to migrate over to a single IP core network in the next eight years. This will mean for many customers a whole new phone system will be needed in order to accommodate the switch.

Whilst the uptake for VoIP telephone lines is increasing by the day, with more and more customers migrating their business phone lines and calls onto the internet using SIP instead of ISDN, this announcement from BT to withdraw ISDN giving a specific date will accelerate the migration to VoIP. For more details about BT’s plans and to look at what options are available for your business, read our blog BT confirm ISDN lines to be terminated by 2025.
