Are you ready for the end of analogue landlines? 

To read more about the switch to digital landlines, visit Essex County Council’s website:

Essex County Council wants to make residents in Ingatestone and Fryerning aware that changes are coming to analogue landlines.

By 2025, traditional phone lines will be replaced by a digital landline service. This means that calls will be made over a broadband line.

For most residents, this change will be straightforward – you’ll also get to keep your phone number. Your telephone provider will contact you before anything changes. It is important to respond and discuss what you need to do to ensure your service won’t be affected.

The switch to digital landline services could affect residents who don’t have broadband, rely solely on a landline, use a personal alarm, have no mobile signal, or have additional needs.

If you’re confused, worried, unsure, or have any questions, call your telephone provider.
