Here’s what you need to keep in mind when shopping for home telephone service.
Included features and devices: Check which services are included with your plan and see if you can include any additional features you might want. Most plans come with features like:
Price: Know what your rate is going to be once the introductory period ends. Look at the monthly service fees, consider the upfront installation fees and see if your provider will waive them or offer rebates. You can also save even more money when you bundle your home phone, TV and internet together in one package.
Contract terms and lengths: Read the fine print on your home phone’s contract length. Confirm that you are committing to a contract for a specified amount of time and if there will be any early-cancellation fees.
Add-ons and bonuses: Companies often offer bonus incentives when you bundle their home services. Ask about any deals, discounts, rebates, credits or cash-back offers your home phone provider can offer by bundling home phone with your TV and internet services.
Getting the most value out of your home phone service is easier than you think. Use our free comparison tool to shop plans available in your area from nationwide phone companies – such as AT&T, Verizon and Time Warner.
Why you still need home phone service
In the age of cellphones and other smart devices, having a home phone line is still important for many reasons. Here are some of the biggest benefits to keeping your home phone service:
Better voice quality and reception: Compared to their mobile counterparts, you can usually get a better signal reception on a home phone since it’s a hardwired connection.
Faster and more accurate responses for 911 emergencies: A home phone is already connected to your address, including your specific apartment number. This means the 911 operator already knows exactly where to send help – even if you’re unable to speak.
Save on your home utilities: Having a home phone line may decrease your overall home utilities bill when bundled with your TV and internet services. Plus, it’s cheaper to share one home phone line than having multiple cell lines for each member of your household.
A smarter, connected home: Most modern home phones now have advanced features that integrate seamlessly with the other devices already in your home. You can now get universal caller ID on your TV and smartphones. Using a Bluetooth connection, your home phone can notify you of incoming texts on your cell phone, and you can even use it to make or take cell calls.
