Residential Telephone Solutions
Even though most people have mobile phones, a landline telephone in your home is still standard. Their main advantages over mobile phones are that a landline telephone does not lose a signal and a minor scratch or drop will not destroy it. Also, a landline telephone never loses power.
Everyday we see television commercials that list the abilities of mobile phones:
- Send Text Messages
- Send Picture Messages
- Internet Access
- Play Music
And everyday a new item is added to the list.
One of the most recent advances in landline telephone technology is VOIP or Voice Over Internet Protocol. VOIP works just like your existing service, but the message is transmitted over the internet instead of PSTN or Public Switched Telephone Network. Because VOIP uses an internet connection, it can be used for more than just a phone call - you can use VOIP for video conferencing and see the person you are talking to. Also, international calls over VOIP are much less expensive than international calls over traditional phone service.
Where can you buy a VOIP Phone? How do you choose one? Most VOIP phones come with a wide variety of features, including:
- Call Hold
- Call Waiting
It is important to have features in mind not only when selecting the phone but also when selecting your service provider. Many service providers also sell or recommend specific phones and vice versa. If you are not ready to make the leap to VOIP but want a landline telephone with beyond standard features, your options are almost endless.
