Which Phone Plan Meets Your Needs?
Talking with loved ones, whether you're on the go or at home, is easier than before. But which phone service provides the most value for your money?
That depends on how you wish to keep in touch and in places you want to call and get calls from. Below are just a few factors to think about before deciding on which plan and provider to opt for.
Local Phone Service
What is considered local may differ by provider, where you reside and which phone service you're using. Local may be:
- Your county or city
- Your state
- The entire U.S.
- The entire country and its territories
- Your supplier's network
The majority of phone packages now include unlimited local calls in the normal charges, however it is not unusual for providers to restrict local calls at a certain amount of minutes then charge extra fees for each minute you go over.
Long-distance Telephone Services
Have family living outside the United States or in another state? Do you own a business with a global market?
Just like local calling areas, what exactly is thought to be long-distance varies based on numerous factors. But, international calls will almost always be considered long-distance. It is advisable to clearly understand what areas are viewed as long-distance since you'll probably incur extra charges on those calls.
Home Phone Companies and Offers
Home phones have been a staple in households for decades, and for justified reasons. A home telephone line keeps you in touch with your friends and family, can allow for access to the internet, and perhaps save your life if there is a sudden emergency.
The calling features that are included in your home phone service differs from one provider to the next. Most offer low cost plans offering basic call features like conference calling, call waiting and more. However, there are actually dozens of calling features available and if you're not careful you may find yourself paying more for features you won't use.
Major home phone providers like Cox Communications enable clients to select precisely what features they would like to include in their phone plan. Other companies like Time Warner Cable and Comcast offer inexpensive plans that include the most used calling features.
