The Low-Down on Landlines.
Why Landlines Matter.
When you call from a landline, your address automatically displays on the dispatcher’s screen.
Quality and reliability
With cell phones, calls can drop in the middle of a conversation. Landlines have always provided the most consistent service with the highest quality voice reception.
Service during power outages
If electricity is out, a corded landline phone will continue to work 99.9 percent of the time. Fiber customers’ phones that have battery backup will work for eight hours.
