TalkTalk Business doubles down on SIP after tIPicall buy

2025 will see traditional voice being switched off.


TalkTalk Business has unveiled its latest Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) offering.

Built on its acquisition of tIPicall, the UK-based SIP and hosted carrier, the new offering will combine TalkTalk’s network with tIPicall’s expertise in SIP.

TalkTalk Business will now offer free SIP trunking with on-net data, with the company citing "market leading voice rates and highly competitive connectivity pricing".

In addition, partners are able to scale contracts up or down on a monthly basis.

Currently TalkTalk carries over 16 billion SIP minutes per annum.

The move comes as the 2025 deadline for traditional voice being switched off approaches and the market shows growth of 30 percent per year.

Charles Bligh, Managing Director at TalkTalk Business, said: "We have always thrived on being innovative and disruptive, delivering value back to our partners and providing a fantastic all-round service. Now we’re getting serious about SIP.
