SoGEA Broadband: What Is It & How Does It Work?

As we get closer and closer to the 2025 deadline for the ’Big Switch Off’, it’s vital that your business is aware of what products and services are available to accommodate the coming changes.

This switch-off does not just affect your phone lines and traditional phone systems, it also affects traditional broadband too. – More Info

The direct replacement for your traditional Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) Broadband, is called SoGEA… which stands for Single order Generic Ethernet Access if you must know!

Like traditional broadband, SoGEA is still delivered into your home or office using the copper line plant, however, this new SoGEA Line is a “data only” service and is ordered as a single product, i.e. no separate line rental.

DB Comms have been early adopters of the SoGEA and almost 80% of broadband orders have been future-proofed connectivity in the last 12 months.

SoGEA is the product for the future and will mitigate the risk to your business of losing its connectivity after the UK PSTN Switch Off in 2025. DB Comms can supply a full range of “future proof connectivity” inc FTTP, SoGEA, and dedicated Leased Lines. These services can be wires only or fully managed and can have an optional suite of mobile or fixed-line automatic failovers.

No one size fits all, we have a range of products, solutions, and service wrap to fit your requirements and budgets, please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.

SoGEA means your business connectivity is ready for the upcoming switch off of UK PSTN Network, but there are a number of other key benefits

  • Single Order
  • Quicker Install
  • Faster Fault Resolution
  • More cost-effective than a separate line and broadband
