10/07/24 - RSN/BT: Digital Telephone Line Switchover Session

RSN facilitated an exclusive event for RSN Local Authorities and members of the Rural Services Partnership to hear from BT on the Digital Home Phone Switchover and what it means for their rural communities.  
It is important that Local Authorities and rural organisations can signpost their residents to trusted sources of information about the switchover and where to go for help.  The resources below will support you with this process.   
There is a video of the presentation given by Vicky Hicks, Head of Engagement at BT below which can be shared with your colleagues.  In addition, the slide pack is also available and has lots of relevant information.
