Next-Generation - SOGEA Technology

Openreach has decided to close the PSTN network by the end of 2025. This means services that run on a landline will no longer work such as broadband and calls. Users will be unable to place calls via their landlines. Users will need to move to voice services such as VoIP and upgrade to SOGEA (Single Order Generic Ethernet Access) broadband.

SOGEA is a single order variant meaning providers can provide broadband without a traditional landline. SOGEA uses the same network infrastructure as existing FTTC services.

The advancement of fibre technology allows better stability and increased bandwidth. With over 28 million (FTTC enabled) premises and growing, users are now benefitting from greater asymmetrical speeds over the existing fixed, yet shared, broadband infrastructure. The maximum download and upload speeds possible with SOGEA broadband are as follows:

SOGEA 40 Mbps download / 10 Mbps upload.
