For businesses and partners looking to prepare for the full fibre future of digital Britain you should be asking yourself 'how do I get SoGEA?'. But in case you're still wondering what the benefits of SoGEA are, we've listed a few here for you.
SoGEA provides cost and time savings. SoGEA is cheaper than the combined costs of a phone line and traditional Internet package. It is also around 30% cheaper than FTTC. Designed to be used in conjunction with a Hosted Phone System, pairing the reliable connectivity provided by SoGEA with an inexpensive cloud-based hosted solution means you benefit from huge savings.
With SoGEA everything comes from one provider, meaning you can easily report and resolve faults if anything goes wrong, meaning complaint resolution is quicker.
SoGEA is quick to install making it a perfect solution for home or remote working. It also provides minimal disruption to businesses.
With only one line, managing your business needs is simple. One line means one provider and one phone call to make changes.
SoGEA offers speeds similar to FTTC, providing high speed reliable connections. Designed specifically to be used alongside a Hosted Phone System, SoGEA is a flexible and robust business solution.
With Openreach switching off the PSTN network by the end of 2025, PSTN exchanges across the UK are already being switched off in preparation for the move to full fibre. SoGEA enables your business to have a broadband or ethernet connection agnostic of the PSTN network, future-proofing your business connectivity.
Built for Business
With the looming PSTN switch off in 2025 and an increase in the use of Hosted Phone Systems most businesses aren't looking to landline services anymore. Traditional telephony solutions are expensive and becoming obsolete. As providers embrace the advances in technology this allows consumers to purchase just a single connection, ultimately providing more scalable, agile and cost effective solutions for businesses of all sizes.
