Which Phone Service is Right for You?
Staying in contact, whether you’re at home or away, is easier than ever. Phone services have been revolutionized over the last decade and have changed the way we communicate on a daily basis.
But what phone service offers the most bang for the buck? That all depends on how you want to stay connected and where you want to call and receive calls from. Below are just a few things to consider before deciding on which phone provider and plan to go with.
What is deemed local varies by provider, where you live and what type of phone service you’re using. Local could be:
- Your city or county
- Your region
- The entire U.S.
- The U.S. and its territories
- Your service provider network
Most phone plans now cover unlimited local calls in the monthly fees, however it’s not uncommon for plans to cap local calls at a certain number of minutes then charge additional fees for every minute you go over.
Long Distance Services
Have family living outside of the U.S. or in another state? Are you a business owner with a global market?
Just like local calling areas, what’s considered long distance varies depending on a number of factors. However, international calls will almost always be considered long distance. It’s important to clearly understand what areas are considered long distance since you’re likely to incur additional fees on those calls.
Home Phone Services
Home phones have been a staple in households for decades, and for good reason. A home phone line keeps you connected to your friends and family, can allow for internet access, and save your life in case of an emergency.
Home Phone Calling Features
The calling features that come with your home phone services varies greatly from provider to provider. Most offer low cost plans that include basic call features like call waiting, three way calling and more. However, there are dozens of calling features to choose from and if you aren't careful you may end up paying more for features you'll never use.
Top home phone providers like Cox Communications allow subscribers to pick and choose exactly which features they want to add to their phone plan. Other providers such as Comcast Cable and Time Warner Cable® offer affordable plans that package together the most popular calling features.
VoIP Phone Services
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a new way to make phone calls from your home using your internet connection rather than a traditional phone line. Calls are converted into data that can be transmitted over the internet in the same way that emails are transmitted. Despite the difference in how the calls are transmitted, VoIP calls sound just like a regular phone call.
In order to use VoIP services, you need to have a computer with high speed internet connection as well as a phone adapter or router and an existing telephone or telephone jack. Cost is the big benefit of using VoIP phone services, especially for people that make calls outside of the country.
