Thank you for the link. It says that IP will be used but it does not mention what hardware will be used. Where Openreach have FTTP they will want to use that for telephone only customers. It would be nice to find something where they state what they will do in areas where they don't have an FTTP service but there are altnets.
After the PSTN switch off, if there's no FTTP available then voice will be provided via VOIP.
OpenReach will sell the ISP a low bandwidth data service for VOIP only (0.5Mb/0.5Mb I believe?).
So if you wanted to buy a voice service from BT after the PSTN switch off then BT would send you a BT Smart Hub 2.
It has a built in ADSL and VDSL2 modem. It will sync at the low bandwidth level mentioned above.
You would then connect your telephone to the voice port on the BT Hub.
It will be up to the ISP to provide a modem/router with an integrated ATA port for voice.
It's how they do voice only services now in FTTP only new builds. They simply use an ONT instead of a modem.
How voice will be provided after PSTN switch off will be irrelevant if there is an Alt-Net present or not.
