Anyone know when they are pulling the plug on this service?

Have tried contacting them but get nothing

Might be the cost of upkeep on an ageing system.

Is it predominantly voice systems on ISDN these days.

It's the big push towards VOIP etc

BT are closing ISDN and PSTN in 2025.  As to on the island I have no idea but it'll have to be by then.

I had heard on the proverbial grapevine that they are looking at shuttering ISDN and moving existing customers over to SIP by the end of this year.......November was floated.

Thanks. That agrees with what I heard. 

We must use the same grapevine.

The IOM has been way behind on carrier-grade SIP/VoIP for some time, certainly compared to the UK. The key difference is that carrier-grade SIP has been in the UK marketplace for years, as an alternative to ISDN - whilst both were available for new orders.

The chronology of telecoms here means that window is far, far narrower.  My experience so far, and anecdotal, is that from pre-sales, ordering and provisioning - SIP has hardly been plain sailing... It will be an interesting switchover...

They told me the end of this year. They came and did a survey, and I've now had quotes for an alternative connection using fibre. 

Did you not get a letter from them telling you all about it?

I doubt they'll get everyone moved over by the end of the year so they'll have to extend the cutoff.

No letter.... Only found out about when Wi-Manx called asking if we were interested in talking to them about using their service when ISDN goes. The guy I've been talking to there has been very helpful, MT on the other hand, have been crap. Haven't they realised that they no longer have a monopoly?
