HOME PHONE SERVICE PROVIDERS
Shopping for the best home phone service providers in your area? Why not determine what your needs are and evaluate the many features offered by each company. You may also want to consider bundling your phone service with a cable TV and high-speed internet package and save money every month.
Whether you are unhappy with your current provider or are looking to save with a new one, keeping your current phone number is one thing to consider. Most companies let you keep your existing phone number, and at no extra cost to you.
If you make many long-distance phone calls throughout the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico, an unlimited long-distance calling plan may be right for you.
Voicemail is another feature to consider. Having messages saved on your phone memory system is convenient and saves you time. Plus, you can retrieve your messages from another phone at any location, when you are not home.

Selecting just the options you’ll need, could save you money every month.
