About this deal

No, the big problem with it is that the phone doesn’t work if your broadband doesn’t, which also means that, unlike all previous sorts of landline, it won’t work during a power cut. If you or a relative are concerned about the impact of the move to digital phone lines on your telecare device, it's worth contacting its provider – usually either a local authority or a private provider – to check whether the device will still work with a digital landline.

But you’ll still have a much clearer line and, if your phone has special features, these will still work. This could be an opportunity for an upgrade - the telecare industry has also been working to develop new products that work using digital phone lines or using a Sim card instead.Whilst you’re waiting for your new BT Broadband service to go live, you’ll continue getting broadband from your old provider. The copper phone network supports thousands of personal alarms and home monitoring systems that allow disabled people and those who are older or have health problems to access help if they need it. BT has come up with a brilliant way of stopping people phoning to complain when their broadband goes down. Sadly, a lot of other provider’s, particularly smaller players, have yet to launch a full VoIP / IP style alternative to traditional phone lines.

The home phone, traditionally, offers the user and the party on the other end of the line total privacy. We’ve ignored the old phone in our house, actually purloined from an office, simply because it hardly ever gets used. inch colour screen is adequate and while it's not exactly high resolution it tells you everything you need to know. If you weren't aware of plans to switch off the PSTN (public switched telephone network), you aren't alone. We’ll also look at the Digital Voice phones that are available from BT, including the Essential Digital Home Phone and the Advanced Digital Home Phone with Alexa built-in.

As they’re cordless, you can use them both pretty much anywhere in your home (with a range of 50m indoors and 300m outdoors).

I've read so many reports of people saying "It's like you're talking to someone in the same room" That statement couldn't be farther from the truth for me. BT can supply hybrid landline phones to those who don’t own a mobile but live in an area with good mobile reception – these have both a built-in backup battery and Sim card. We’ll contact you with details of your Switch Over Day (this is the day we activate Digital Voice in your home). Granted you get the first handset free but can imagine they will do different versions with more features, bigger screen etc.Alexa is the main draw here, but BT has also detailed other features that will be present in the Advanced Digital Home Phone.
