Number porting for businesses throughout the UK
United Telecoms helps businesses transition from landlines to VoIP, as the 2025 deadline for the PSTN and WLR3 phase-out draws near.
We provide detailed guidance to help organisations address any potential obstacles and ensure a smooth transition to VoIP.
VoIP allows businesses to manage voice communications using their broadband or fibre connection instead of traditional landlines. It also provides amazing features that help businesses streamline communications and enhance their capabilities.
VoIP is more cost effective and can reduce costs associated with traditional phone systems, including landline rental, hardware installation, call rates and more.
Speak to a specialist that can help you port your landline number to VoIP. You can also explore our guide: to port landline numbers to VoIP in the United Kingdom in 2023 which breaks down the steps involved during the porting process.
Purchase options for business phone lines, SIP & VoIP Phone Systems
At United Telecoms, we offer flexible payment options for business PBX systems. You can either purchase your phone system outright via BACS payment or opt for a fixed-term lease.
SIP & VoIP system fixed-term rentals and upfront purchases
Purchasing equipment outright through a BACS payment enables businesses to take immediate ownership of their hardware and potentially save on the total cost of the system.
Choosing to lease the equipment affords businesses the chance to sidestep substantial one-time payments while enjoying increased flexibility in terms of upgrades, expansions, and maintenance.

To set up a business phone number in the UK, you may need to find a reputable provider that can help you set up a geographic or virtual number to manage your business communications. United Telecoms helps set up business telephone numbers throughout the UK that can be used with cloud PBX and SIP trunk solutions.
Getting a virtual business phone number involves selecting VoIP or cloud-based phone service (such as United Voice Cloud Hosted PBX). This type of service allows you to choose a number that is cloud-hosted. You can then make and receive calls over the internet, using either a physical IP handset or a software-based phone on your computer or mobile device.
VoIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol. It is a technology that allows voice communications to be conducted over the internet. VoIP provides a wide range of features for managing voice communications while reducing costs, improving scalability and much more.
VoIP works by converting voice signals into digital data and transmitting it over the internet. It allows you to make calls directly from a computer, a VoIP phone, or a traditional phone connected to a special adapter. It offers a number of benefits including lower costs, enhanced functionalities, and the ability to handle more than just voice calls.
For VoIP, you’ll need a broadband internet connection, a router, and a VoIP-enabled phone or softphone extension to make and receive calls.
Some businesses may also require a VoIP gateway if they have traditional phone systems in place.
Requirements for business telephone system installation
Installation requirements vary depending on the type of phone system you choose, such as a hybrid IP PBX system (SIP trunk), or a cloud-based phone system.
We explore the installation requirements in detail for these solutions on our PBX installation page and you can reach out to us for further assistance.
Physical phone lines: Required for a traditional phone system and hybrid PBX systems. The number of lines you’ll need depends on the number of users required.
Hardware: For analogue PBX systems and hybrid PBX systems, you will need a PBX main unit and other essential hardware components.
Cabling: Desk phones and base stations for cordless phones require proper physical connections to your PBX system, which requires correctly laid-out cabling within your premises. The extent of your cabling needs may differ for installing cloud based phone systems.
Location: Location is a crucial factor as it can influence the type of phone system and network solution that best suits your communication needs. If you’re implementing a VoIP phone system, you will need to utilise a reliable internet connection (broadband or fibre) to facilitate communication.
Handsets/peripherals: Existing PBX handsets need to be compatible with your system or new handsets can be purchased, such as analogue, digital, or VoIP phones, to help manage your communications. Handsets and peripherals must be selected based on compatibility with your system and their ability to manage voice communications.
