Checklist: Prepare your business for the ISDN network shutdown

Openreach announced in 2015 that they would begin to phase out their ISDN lines. This will start from January 2020 with complete ‘shut down’ of the ISDN network by 2025.

From January 2020, you will no longer be able to purchase additional ISDN2 or ISDN30 lines. This does not mean you cannot use your existing lines. However, it does mean you can no longer add new lines, should you have ISDN2 or ISDN30. In 2025, these ISDN lines will no longer be operational. This gives you just over 5 years to find an alternative solution.
