What is SoGEA?
SoGEA stands for Single Order Generic Ethernet Access. It is a new product from BT Openreach so that we can enable fibre to the cabinet without a phone line. This means that you’ve got everything you need within one single order. SoGEA is the next step forward moving on from the current Analogue and ISDN infrastructure.
So why choose SoGEA and what are the benefits?
Currently in the world of technology most people only have a fixed line as it is necessary for their broadband to work. Now there is even less requirement for old phone services due to the advancements and cost effectiveness of VoIP and mobile handsets, and the nationwide rollout of full fibre networks.
As there has been a shift in usage, phone lines are no longer required by consumers or businesses thanks to SoGEA. Our customers can now get a voice service on a SoGEA line which will be an IP-based solution such as VoIP.
Openreach have claimed that installation of SoGEA is up to 50% quicker. With lower install and rental costs, SoGEA is the new way forward.
