Which Home Phone Option is Right for You?
Talking with loved ones, whether you happen to be at your house or out and about, is less complicated than in the past. But which phone service offers the most bang for your buck?
That depends on how you would like to keep in touch and where you need to call and get telephone calls from. Below are just some factors to take into consideration before deciding on which service provider and package to use.
Local Phone Service
What is actually deemed local differs by provider, where you reside and which phone service you have. Local may be:
- Your city or county
- The state where you live
- The entire U.S.
- The U.S. as well as its territories
- Your company network
Many phone plans now include unlimited local calls as a part of the normal charges, however it is not unusual for plans to restrict local calls at a certain number of minutes then charge extra fees for each minute you go above that.
Long-distance Telephone Services
Have relatives living outside of the U.S. or in another state? Are you a business owner with a world-wide market?
Like local calling areas, what's regarded as long-distance varies based on numerous factors. However, international calls will almost always be considered long-distance. It is advisable to clearly understand what areas are considered long-distance since it's likely you'll incur extra charges on those calls.
Home Phone Companies and Packages
Home phones have been a staple in households for decades, and for good reason. A home phone line keeps you linked to your family and friends, can allow for internet access, and even save your life in the instance of an unexpected emergency.
The calling features that are included in your home phone service varies greatly from company to company. Most offer affordable plans offering basic call features like call waiting, three-way calling and more. However, you will find dozens of calling features available and if you aren't careful you may wind up paying more for features you might not ever use.
Major phone providers like Cox Communications allow customers to pick and choose exactly which features they wish to include in their phone service. Other service providers such as Comcast Cable and Time Warner Cable offer reasonably priced plans that include the most common calling features.
