Why You Still Need Home Phone Service
In our modern era of always having our cell phones and other smart devices on hand, many people think that their home phones have now become useless chunks of plastic. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth. See below for just some of the benefits of keeping your home phone service.
- Better Voice Quality and Reception: Compared to their mobile counterparts, you’ll get better signal reception and far less static on a home phone since it’s a hardwired connection. This is especially true when calling from a basement or in areas far from a cell tower.
- Faster and More Accurate Responses for 911 Emergencies: Whereas cell phones have to bounce a signal off of towers to find you, 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.
- Saving on Your Home Utilities: It’s both cheaper and easier to share one home phone line than having multiple, barely-used cell lines. Beyond that, a home phone line will decrease your home security bill, as it makes installing and monitoring the security system easier. And, even better, a home phone may decrease your overall home utilities bill by bundling it with your TV and Internet services.
- Makes for a Smarter, Connected Home: Modern home phones now have advanced features that integrate seamlessly with the other devices already in your home. For example, you can now get Universal Caller ID on your TV and smartphones; readable voicemail, close-range walkie-talkies, and text messaging through your home phone; and – via a Bluetooth connection– your home phone can notify you of incoming texts on your cell phone, as well as use it to make or take cell calls.
Common Home Phone Service Questions:
What is a landline?
A landline phone, commonly referred to as a home phone, is a type of phone service that transmits audio data through a wire or fiber optic cable. Landlines are different than mobile phones
Do I still need a home phone?
Cell phones have become mainstream forms of communication leaving many to wonder if they still need a home phone. While home phones aren’t completely necessary if you have a cell phone, there are some reasons why you might want to keep one connected. For one, home phones tend to have better voice quality and reception since they are hardwired directly into the phone network. This could be beneficial if you spend a lot of time on the phone at home (either on conference calls or talking to distant family). Landline phones are also faster and more accurate in case of an emergency. A home phone is connected to your exact address, so the 911 operator will know exactly where you are located if you aren’t able to speak. These are just a few reasons why you might want to think twice before ditching your home phone.
What are the cheapest home phone providers?
Home phone service is relatively inexpensive in general, but the following service providers are known for their affordable home phone service:
