Many households these days go without a landline phone, with each member of the household having a cell phone. But in many cases there is no need to ditch the landline, even with a cell phone, as home phone service is more affordable than ever before, and often available in cost-saving bundles with other necessary household services, such as cable television and high-speed internet service.
Take, for example, Charter Spectrum Digital Voice. When bundled with Charter Spectrum TV and Charter Spectrum Internet, it adds no cost to the monthly bill for the first year. With this home phone service, the calling area is beyond that provided by most cell phone plans in the United States, including the entirety of the US (the contiguous 48 states, Hawaii and Alaska), as well as Canada and US territories like Puerto Rico, Guam, and the US Virgin Islands. Your talk is unlimited, meaning that your bill is the same each month no matter how many calls you do make in these areas.
Charter’s home phone service also adds a number of calling features that customers can’t live without, including Caller ID, Call Waiting, Call Forwarding, and an easy to use Voicemail service with free storage. Perhaps the most vital service is Anonymous Call Rejection, which means you won’t be getting any calls from blocked numbers and that means way fewer calls from telemarketers!
In addition, when you lose or break your cell phone, it can take days to get a replacement, especially if your phone is insured and you’re waiting for one to come through the mail. Do you want to be out of touch for that long? Think about a landline.
