Is your business ready?

For some time now, telecom network providers have been making plans to move all the voice networks over to VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) – the new digital standard for voice traffic. The phased approach when the networks will start switching off the traditional ISDN and PSTN [Analogue] circuits is set for 2022, although for many new installation areas this has already begun! For thousands of businesses, this will mean an upgrade or replacement of their current telephone systems to allow the calls to route over the new internet protocol.

There are several key factors to consider when you’re switching from ISDN to VoIP, one of the most important being – Is your internet connection good enough to deliver a business grade VoIP service whilst still handling the day to day needs of your business’s IT data demands?

In Hull and the surrounding area, we have a key advantage over the rest of the UK with KCOM, the incumbent ISP (Internet Service Provider) for Hull and East Riding, having rolled out the installation of FTTP (Fibre-to-the-Premise) connectivity to the majority of the 200,000+ premises within their network area. Cobus are a wholesale platinum partner of KCOM and in a position to provide discounted products and services with a dedicated and managed service.

Whilst this new internet service delivery has been successfully taken up by many businesses across the region, most haven’t considered the massive shift that will take place over the next few years when the fixed line ISDN infrastructure is turned off and the need to upgrade their telephony systems to one of the new digital variants: VoIP, SIP, or a Hosted solution is upon them.

Here at Cobus, we have always prided ourselves on recommending the best solution to suit your needs whilst considering the features, the infrastructure, and the price, as well ensuring we future proof your business with the correctly chosen platform. 

Following the unprecedented and turbulent times over the past 18-months, we have constantly been looking at new ways that we can further help assist businesses with their communications needs while considering the UK network telephone line switch off. What we came up with is “FREE monthly telephone bills until April 2022” …sounds almost too good to be true, but it’s not!

The offer: We’re offering businesses, that switch or upgrade to Cobus, their monthly telephone bills at ZERO COST until April 2022. This solution includes inclusive calls and optional features such as video conferencing, auto-attendant, instant messaging etc. This enables businesses to handle their office communications effectively and professionally while not having to find or invest any capital and/or monthly payments following these past difficult and troubling 18-months. This offer is for a limited time only and subject to a minimum agreement term.

Moving to a Hosted VoIP telecoms system where you can work from home, or any alternative location, is a relatively easy transition with minimal disruption when managed correctly and efficiently. COVID forced many businesses to work in this way so created an increased need for collaboration and seamless connectivity over remote locations. This has led to many businesses migrating from a predominantly onsite system to a Hosted solution, on occasions within as little as 24-hours. Thousands of businesses across the UK have run their telecoms as traditional on-premise systems for years, so it can seem like a huge step to upgrade to an Internet cloud-based system. However, we have been established for over 30-years, we are experts, and we are here to help your business and make the move as seamless as possible.
