Don’t pay an arm and a leg for a landline service you barely use. Get VoIP phone line that works over your broadband connection!
Don’t pay an arm and a leg for a landline service you barely use! You can save some money and get a phone line for your home or business that works over the internet. All you will need is to have a broadband connection with UBB in order to take up this calling service.
VoIP which stands for voice over internet protocol, pronounced “voyp” transmits the phone call over the internet. As the old copper phone lines are degrading and the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) is shutting down, VoIP offers a great solution. This phone line service can be used with all of our internet services 4G Wireless Broadband, Fibre Broadband, and Rural Wireless Broadband.
VoIP phones in NZ require an active broadband connection and power for the service to work. Calls run over your broadband connection. If you have a power cut, both your broadband and phone won’t work – this includes all calls, even emergency calls to 111.
UBB recommends always having a charged mobile phone ready to use as a backup encase of an emergency. If you have no cell phone reception as a backup solution and require the ability to call 111 at any point for you or someone in your household or business, then please apply for our voip landline vulnerable consumer form. UBB will provide a solution at no cost for you if you meet the corect eligibility criteria. Or have a look at our cell phone signal boosters!
If you have a monitored security or medical alarm that relies on your phone line it’s important that you call the company that monitors your alarm to ask if their services will work with voice calling over broadband. If not, you’ll need to find an alternative before you move to voice calling over broadband/wireless broadband.
The Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) is being shut down. If you have a phone line that runs over copper wiring, which uses Spark’s, or Vodafone’s PSTN network. Or if you have a traditional home phone, it will stop working once Spark closes your local exchange. They started decommissioning this network in 2017 and are taking an area-by-area approach with the aim of completing the work by 2023.
To make sure you are up and running on more modern technology, be sure to get in touch with UBB and ask about alternative services like voice calling over broadband or Wireless Broadband
