Within IBSTec’s reliable, high quality traditional telecoms services we provide line rental (PSTN and ISDNs) and marketing numbers (03, 08 and 09) at competitive rates. As an IBSTec partner you can resell these services on a standalone basis or as part of a combined voice and data connectivity solution (e.g. the underlying phone line for calls and broadband; or as a backup for VoIP connections).

Furthermore, you can earn competitive ongoing monthly commissions from all line rental services and from marketing numbers where applicable.

IBSTec partners with tier 1 networks to ensure complete confidence in the quality and reliability of your voice services. Our services are also fully supported by our 24/7 UK based technical support department.

 Line Rental

IBSTec’s portfolio includes wholesale line rental (WLR3) for BT PSTN and ISDN lines, enabling you to provide customers with high quality, reliable BT lines at competitive prices for voice calls and/or broadband. If you already provide a customer’s broadband service, securing their line rental business as well further cements your customer relationship. Even where your customers already have their lines installed by BT Retail or any other BT Wholesale based service provider, you can still transfer those existing lines to us and continue to benefit from the revenue they generate in terms of the rental and the calls made on them. With just a 30 day cancellation period and no minimum contract terms, they provide a recurring monthly commission for the life of the connection. Flexible billing options allow for white label branding while a choice of 3 line care options for faults and maintenance are also available. IBSTec PSTN and ISDN lines are maintained by BT Openreach.

PSTN (Public Services Telephone Network)

As cost effective telephony solutions our analogue PSTN lines are available in residential, business single and business multi-line options. A host of Select services are also available dependent on line type including caller ID display, 1571 messaging, call divert and many more.

ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network)

Our ISDN lines provide simultaneous inbound/outbound calling capability and are completely flexible, easily accommodating the growth and changing requirements of a customer’s organisation. We offer both ISDN2 and ISDN30 lines, with each ISDN30 requiring a minimum order of 8 channels up to 30. ISDN features include call line identity presentation, admin call forwarding and more.
