What is being switched off and when?

As part of Openreach’s plan to switch off copper PSTN phone lines and digital ISDN lines at the beginning of 2027 there are 2 separate projects running alongside called the Stop Sell project and the full fibre priority exchange project.

The stop sell project is where copper and digital phones lines cannot be ordered as new or additional services from September 2023. This means if you need an extra ISDN channel for your phone system you will not be able to order one, if you need an extra copper phone line. You will not be able to order one.

Stop Sell has already started as part of Openreachs full fibre priority exchange program and as of January 2023 there were over 700 Openreach exchange areas where stop sell has already started. These are exchanges where 75% of premises linked to that exchange can access full fibre services.
