FTTP & digital voice

My nearly-new house has fttp and it's associated phone is surely digital.  All  handsets are connected by POTS wiring and sockets to a phone socket at the base of the 'ONT' box.  Now multiple messages by post and email from BT urge me to convert to digital voice.  Apparently I do so by plugging into the router green socket instead of the 'ont ' box. 

The BT paper work explains nothing. Surely I have digital voice already?

Can anyone explain why this change is necessary?  Hitherto I thought I understood how phones, both analogue and digital, and broadband work.  I have not yet changed anything, to see what happens next.

Re: FTTP & digital voice

What you currently have is FVA, fibre voice access which is an early voice system over FTTP by Openreach which is being discontinued in favour of a BT VoIP system known as Digital Voice. The faq describes it operation and possibilities.
