With the NBN coming, many people are concerned that their existing business phone system will not work once the cutover happens. Be sure to read some of our most commonly answered questions below for more information on how the NBN may affect you and your pre-existing phone system. All the changes happening to our national broadband network can be a great opportunity to re-evaluate your current phone system and upgrade to a new VoIP or SIP NBN ready phone system which runs over the internet. We can help put you in touch with a phone systems provider that can offer the best value solution for your business.
Once the NBN is in your area there is generally 18 months before your copper services are switched off so it’s best to be ready in advance. You don’t have to change your phone system immediately, most systems do function on the NBN network.
Most phone systems can already work on the NBN. An NBN ready phone system is a phone system that utilises the increased Internet speeds on the fibre network. These are called VoIP & SIP phone systems, or may be a hybrid of traditional telephony and VoIP.
It’s a great time to review your current set up. A lot of VoIP and SIP phone systems have great features and productivity tools to help make your business more efficient.
