Need 911? Help Finds You Faster With a Home Phone

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

For an excellent value, ask about our home phone plan that combines unlimited local and long distance calling. Call 563-245-4000.

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.
