What is PhoneLine+?

PhoneLine+ has been designed to replace the traditional landline service using Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology to deliver calls over the broadband network, at a highly competitive price. Phoneline Plus is the telephone line for the future and the perfect small business phone system. It’s everything you can do on your traditional line line, and more. With the public switched telephone network (PSTN) switch off fast approaching, Phone Line Plus is the perfect cloud based upgrade and will ensure your business is ready for a full-fibre future. PhoneLine+ allows you to keep your existing business numbers, and make or receive voice calls from your mobile, tablet, desktop computer or handset with no more running to pick up the phone in time. PhoneLine Plus supports all the key features expected of a traditional telephone line, including voicemail, call divert and call hold, but without paying over the odds. This internet calling service comes hand-in-hand with an easy to use online hub which puts you in control of your calls and connected with your customers.

Easy to use

We know you don’t have the time to read lengthy instruction manuals or learn how to install or use a complicated phone system, so PhoneLine Plus has been designed with a simple-to-use user web-based interface. Once you’ve signed up, Phone Line Plus is delivered immediately via email, so there is no waiting for an engineer to call, simply download the app or soft client to your device(s) of choice. Immediately start making and receiving calls and managing your customer experience.

No more running

Every call matters when you’re running a small business. So you need to know you’re available to speak to your customers, wherever you are – rather than making a mad dash to try to reach your landline phone in time! PhoneLine+ can be loaded on the device or devices of your choice including laptop, tablet, or mobile phone (whether Android or Apple) or IP handset. If you are logged in on that device, then it will ring when a call comes in.

Features of PhoneLine+

How does PhoneLine+ work?

PhoneLine Plus takes your traditional 01 and 02 telephone numbers and places them in the cloud. This removes the connection to the legacy copper PSTN network, which is being turned off, and instead uses digital VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technology to deliver voice calls over a broadband network. It’s fast, reliable, cost effective and future-proof.

Made of copper, the PSTN has become fragile, served it’s purpose and is now making way for a much more resilient replacement. Openreach is busy upgrading telephone exchanges across the country and is on track to replace every copper connection in the UK by 2025.

Openreach is installing ultrafast, full fibre optic connections across the UK to replace the historic copper-based lines provided by the PTSN.
