Advantages of a Land Line
- Local 911 services have the caller's exact location when a caller calls from a landline due to your home phone's direct connection with the 911 network. Emergency services may not find you on a cell phone.
- Your landline phone service has its own power backup, so it will continue working during extended power outages. Make sure you keep a simple corded phone in your home that doesn't require batteries or electrical outlet to work. A VOIP won't work in a power outage and your cell phone will go dead eventually.
- Conversations are not dropped because of poor signal quality.
- Your home phone provides unlimited local calling and affordable long distance. No counting minutes or expensive penalties for going over your allotted time.
- No surprises on your phone bill-you know what it will be each month so you can manage your household budget more effectively.
- A home phone is easy and cheap to buy and replace. No contracts.
- Bundling your land line will save you money.
