17 May 2024Drop in events to learn more about the Digital Switchover in Northumberland

Good morning,

Drop in events to learn more about the Digital Switchover in Northumberland

Many people in Northumberland will have questions or would like to know more about the Digital Switchover. By December 2025, services that rely on the old landline system such as home phones and healthcare devices will be switched to upgraded digital landline services as part of a national switchover led by the UK telecomms industry. 

This may include: 

- Home phones (traditional landline) 

- Amplified phones (for those with hearing loss) 

- Personal telecare products  

- Fall and motion detectors 

- Portable healthcare devices such as ECG or oxygen monitors 

Throughout June, BT will be heading to Northumberland where a team will be on hand to tell people about its new home phone service Digital Voice, why the change is necessary and what it means. Please see the event information below which may be of interest to your town or parish.

You don’t have to pre-book, just turn up.
