Fast and reliable guest internet has become something we almost expect to have when we stay in a hotel or go to a restaurant. And for your business, it could also be a vital tool in building your online presence.

Introducing SO Wi-Fi, installed by the experts here at One Connectivity.


Safety matters – secure Wi-Fi for your customers

SO Wi-Fi is easy to access – all your customers need is an email address or social media account. A few clicks of a mouse and that’s it!


Getting to know your customers

It’s always important to know what your customers need. SO Wi-Fi uses the data they provide when they log in to build a picture of who your customers are. What offers appeal to them? How can you give them the service they expect?

This information helps you to build brand awareness and create offers that will appeal to both new and existing customers. All from a guest Wi-Fi connection!

The ISDN Switch Off & The Alternatives

May 2, 2017 11:55 am View Post

Two Years ago, BT announced that it will phase out ISDN by 2025 – but what does this mean for your business?

During this phase-out BT have also advised that their investment in this technology will reduce and eventually become obsolete, which will mean that it will become less stable over time.

Eight years seems like a long way off – so why even worry about it today?

Good question! 8 years is a long time, but considering there are millions of customers that will need to first understand and then migrate to an alternative solution, couple this with the diminishing investment hence less reliability, maybe now is the perfect time to update.

What Are The Alternatives For My Business?

It’s OK making an announcement that ISDN won’t be available to your business but we still need to make and receive calls, have on-hold music, use an IVR platform or even have the calls that take place recorded for compliance reasons. Don’t panic! There are alternatives available and they can actually be more resilient, cheaper and feature rich.

Below we detail what the new options are –


Fully Hosted VoIP System

The world has seen a massive switch to the Cloud, particularly over the last 3 to 4 years as consumers and businesses alike move with the times, and this has been no different for telephony. An increasing number of businesses are putting their phone systems into the Cloud, using data rather than a piece of copper to make calls over and having their phone system hosted by a third party like One Connectivity.

This is an amazing solution for a lot of businesses. Our rule of thumb would be that you must have fibre broadband or an assured product available and have no more than 30 to 40 seats. However, it is just a rule of thumb and it would need to be assessed on an individual company basis – a service which we can help you with.

SIP and The Hybrid Phone System

This is one for the small or larger business that has a current phone system on-site and enjoy the comfort of having a physical box that can be maintained normally by the company, like One Connectivity, who have supplied based on an in-depth analysis of your needs, arranged for full installation and will maintain the system for its life.

SIP trunking is a powerful, scalable and highly flexible solution that helps businesses to streamline their communication costs and resources. Its key feature is the removal of the physical aspect of the phone lines – reducing the restrictions around call capacity and location.

By using virtual phone lines rather than physical wires it is a cheaper and more scalable solution than traditional ISDN. From free call-forwarding to remote workers – either to their smartphone or PC, to the more simple features such as hunt groups and group mailboxes – it can do it all. So much so that every month more features are being developed to meet growing customer demand, and being an internet-based product the opportunity for development is endless and cost-effective.


Our Partnership with Ericsson LG & Pragma Distribution

I am sure that that is enough information for a Tuesday afternoon! So look out later this week for an introduction into our partnership with Ericsson LG through Pragma Distribution and why we chose the Ericsson system over the others in the marketplace.

How Does A VoIP System Benefit My Business?

March 17, 2017 11:51 am View Post

This is one question our telecom experts are asked on a very regular basis.

So how does VoIP (also known as Hosted PBX and Hosted IP) exactly benefit you, your business, and going forwards, how can it change the way your team work?


VoIP, which is short for Voice over Internet Protocol, allows you to make calls over broadband internet instead of the traditional phone line. VoIP converts sound into digital voice communication, and is then transferred through internet broadband.

It is a secure and reliable platform – delivering a quality service that is completely flexible and is extremely cost effective. Although VoIP can benefit all businesses financially, but in particular to those who have multiple sites or for those who regularly make international calls.



HIGH CALL QUALITY – Thanks to our state of the art platform – there is no reduction to quality

CALL COSTS – You will immediately see a reduction in your call costs (particularly with our minute bundles)

FEATURE RICH – Our VoIP offering is feature rich with many traditional features such as auto-attendants/ IVR, call-forwarding, hunt groups and voicemail.

GEOGRAPHIC REACH – In business it is often desirable to have presence in other parts of the country. With our VoIP platform, you can choose a number from a wide range of both geographical and non-geographical ranges from across the world.

FLEXIBILITY – As long as you have a connection to the internet, you are a part of your new VoIP system, in the office, at home, or even on holiday, you can still make or receive calls. And all calls within the system are free (perfect for multi-site or international businesses)

MAINTENANCE – We take care of looking after your system, ensuring it is always operating at 100%. The result is less cost to you in maintenance and support contacts and no more complex replacing PBX’s.

SCALABILITY – As your business grows, so can the system. No expensive ISDN upgrades or phone system update, all that is needed is the addition of an extension and an extra handset.



We will always recommend that businesses, no matter how big or small should consider migrating to a new VoIP system before the traditional phone line breaks! Keeping up to date with the latest telecommunication system help to ensure you are ahead of your competition, and at the same time, allowing communication with your callers to be at best quality your business deserves.

One Connectivity are proud to work with award winning partners for our VoIP systems.
