Solved! Go to Solution.
if posting here you must have internet access so are you a BT broadband customer with a BT hub for internet? Digital voice does not work over wifi but connects to your hub using DECT. you can also connect your existing phone to the green socket on the back of the hub
@xKJx To add to @imjolly 's post. Every provider is moving their customers to this Internet based (Digital Voice/VoIP) voice service as the current system used today is closing.
There's solutions being offered and expectations set by the regulator, OFCOM, when migrating to this Internet based service. BT Consumer themselves offer a battery backup (UPS) device today to continue powering the Smart Hub 2 for a period of time in a powercut. They are working on other solutions too such as ones that last longer and also hybrid handsets that switch to use the mobile network as an example.
If you have a medical condition or have medical equipment then you can also register with your energy suppliers Priority Services Register which will provide those with extra help when there's a powercut. BT Consumer have a priority welfare register too to help prioritise those customers when their broadband has a fault.
