Simple. No more landlines. Faster connectivity for your business.
Single Order Generic Ethernet Access (SOGEA) – has officially been launched in the UK, marking the end of the old analogue telephone network (known to most as the “landline” phone service). An important stepping stone toward the switch-off the old PSTN Network. The market is gearing up to adopt an “All IP” (Internet Protocol) network by 2025.
SOGEA generally refers to Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC / VDSL2) based broadband services, while the G.fast version is called SOGFAST and the variant for ADSL2+ lines is known as SOADSL. Meanwhile voice-only customers in areas with no “fibre” (FTTC/P/G.fast) alternative will eventually be offered a special Single Order Transitional Access Product (SOTAP). A lot of jargon but it all means no more landlines, only faster broadband lines!
