Hi

In Auckland CBD, is it true that old school Copper Line phone systems will soon no longer work
ie :small CBD offices being forced into upgrading to fibre & VOIP ?

 

or is this just Spark salespeople spreading FUD & trying to get Customers to upgrade to more expensive systems ?

i feel like there is more context to this than your post leads on, iver that or the rep you spoke to has gotten confused.

 

I'm sure they were not intentionally spreading incorrect information.

 

 

 

What are you trying to do?

Its more of Chorus etc wanting people to move to fiber etc to get off copper, not that its going to be turned off (yet). So bit of either confusion or scare mongering.

They might be referring to the ISDN network Basic rate and Primary rate.

 

There are no new Basic rate customers, and Basic Rates are no new additions but moves allowed.

 

POTS I am sure will be around for some time.

Exactly why i asked for further details.

 

 

 

Equally likely they were after Centrix or the likes, again same situation.

 

There are better replacements, Helps to have the right discussions around what suits your needs.

 

 

 

POTS isn't going anywhere, yes it moves to Baseband IP but for 99% of usecases that doesnt affect anything.

Classic pots is rapidly dying now for both Vodafone and spark. I wouldn’t want to run my business on these now, and can’t imagine why you’d deploy anything new connecting to such old tech.

If it’s a question of plumbing old kit into new tech there’s always options. If it’s a sales job.... well, all good

Spark are actively migrating customers to FWA and UFB. 

 

As for "more expensive systems" most people out there whether they're POTS or PRI/BRI will find significant cost savings moving to VoIP regardless of who the VoIP provider is.

 

The shutdown of the NEAX network starts next year, however regular copper lines will be available for many years to come, it'll just be VoIP to the cabinet and ISAM/V card rather than a NEAX at the other end.
