Single PSTN Lines
Residential & Business
The traditional style phone socket you see in most homes and businesses is known as a PSTN line. The single PSTN line form comes either as a residential (care level 1) or business (care level 2) form. It is these lines that can be used in conjunction with ADSL or FTTC to supply broadband connectivity to your premises.
Multi-lines differ from single lines in as much as they can’t support broadband. However, what they can deliver is one phone number, but multiple lines to call out on, or receive calls through. This can then be connected to a basic phone system to handle, which can work out cheaper than the equivalent ISDN solution.
What are Analogue line?
An Analogue line is a single copper cable that is run in to your building by your line provider. Before ADSL was available Analogue lines were. used for both voice and data. Now these lines are used mainly just for voice calls as the total bandwidth available is only 56k.
