Whats is SoGEA? 


SoGEA is a term you're probably seeing more and more, and with the PSTN switch off on the horizon it's time to find out about it.


Single order Generic Ethernet Access (SoGEA) is simpler than it sounds, it Is just a new solution that enables us to provide broadband without needing a phone line. Giving you the Internet connection you require within a single order and without a PSTN line.



Why SoGEA? 


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.


SoGEA is also faster to install and more reliable than legacy FTTC and ADSL as it does not require a separate telephone line. SoGEA is similar to today’s broadband in that its maximum download speed is 80 Mbps, if you need higher bandwidths for your business, we’d suggest you look at FTTP or a dedicated Leased Line which can offer speeds of up to 1 Gbps and even higher.
