Why You Need Your Landline Phone
“A balanced choice is often the best one – a combination of landline and wireless phone use may be the right choice for you.” ~ Federal Communications Commission
You may have considered eliminating your home telephone and replacing it with a cell phone or Internet-based system such as a cable digital phone or VoIP.
Think twice before you make that move, since a landline phone is the most reliable device on the market today and offers these valuable advantages:
- Provides security in an emergency with reliable 911 communications.
- Gives you superior sound quality and clarity.
- Works even during an electrical outage.
- Eliminates need to charge batteries.
- Provides unlimited local calling.
- Never drops your calls.
- Can’t be hacked.
- Saves you money when you bundle services.
- Provides you with a directory listing

Make A Corded Phone Part of Your Storm Plan
When bad weather hits, will your family be prepared? Severe storms and heavy winds can easily disrupt electrical service. Or a power outage could occur for other reasons. One item to be sure and have on hand is a corded landline phone, since it does not require electricity and could be your backup method of communication during and after a storm.
It’s important for you to know:
- Cordless phones require electricity and will not continue to work during a power outage.
- Cellular systems and towers are not required to provide backup power, so cell phones may not operate during a power outage either.
For safety’s sake, Alpine Communications urges you to always have at least one corded phone in your home. We have a wide variety of corded and cordless telephones for sale at our Alpine TEC Store in Elkader. For more information about the importance of having a corded phone, call us at 563-245-4000.
