What is SoGEA?
Until now, a traditional ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) phone line and a separate broadband line was needed to deliver broadband to the office. With ISDN phone lines being switched off in 2025, now is the perfect time to futureproof your broadband and weigh up your options. With SoGEA you’ll be preparing your connectivity ahead of the switch.


SoGEA stands for Single Order Generic Ethernet Access. It is used to deliver broadband without the need to also have traditional ISDN phone lines. SoGEA doesn’t share the phone line, it is its own dedicated line that delivers your voice and broadband connection.

You’ll also be futureproofing your connectivity for years to come. SoGEA enables your business to have a reliable, cost-effective broadband connection after the switch off in 2025.


SoGEA can bring a multitude of benefits to your business, no matter your size, budget or industry.

  • It’s super-fast – SoGEA is the next-gen connectivity solution, with faster upload and download speeds than a traditional ISDN connection.
  • You only need one order for phone and broadband – SoGEA strips the need for a separate landline for your business. Small businesses, who may not require a landline, will no longer need to pay for this additional monthly expense on top of their broadband costs.
  • Easy install – Installation is super simple, and ordering is as easy as pie.
  • No need for a landline – If you don’t need a landline, you’re in luck. Save your costs by removing the need to lease your phone landline.
  • Great for home workers – With so many UK businesses shifting towards a hybrid workforce SoGEA provides the essential connectivity needed at home.


One of the drawbacks of SoGEA is that your phone system needs to be switched over too, as you lose your traditional phone line. Users who want to continue using landline phones should adopt a VoIP phone system in its place, which runs over an internet connection.


There are 3 million business lines in the UK, the vast majority of which are using a broadband connection that is soon to become obsolete. SoGEA is the simplest and most cost-effective solution to a problem that organisations and businesses across the country will soon face. We can make the switch as smooth as easy as pie, with minimum disruption to your comms.


SoGEA is available to over 28 million businesses and premises across the UK, with more and more becoming available in the next few months.
