Analogue lines have been the backbone of the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) for many years. They are used for a variety of purposes such as alarm lines, an ADSL bearer line, PDQ machines, or just as a simple phone line.
All analogue lines are the same, what makes them different and affects the monthly rental is the 'care-level' assigned to them. When comparing costs, make sure you compare like for like and that you have chosen the care level that is right for your business. Higher care levels include a faster response in the event of a fault. For general business use, we recommend and use Premium lines (care level 2). For business critical lines, a faster response might be needed and, for those, we recommend care level 3 or 4.
