With the popularity of mobile phones growing across the globe, we tend to forget the importance of our reliable landline phone service.
While mobile phones are at the forefront of phone communication these days, landlines still play a very important role in telecommunications. Overall, local and long distance calls are cheaper. Security systems require landlines and they are more difficult to hack than mobile phones. Not to mention that if you dial 9-1-1 from a landline phone, the emergency responders can pinpoint your exact location unlike a mobile phone.
Loss of signal while using mobile phones is another reason to also have a home or office phone as well especially in rural areas. With a landline phone you can hold a crystal clear conversation with a loved one or business client without losing quality or reception.
Although mobile phones may be used more in today’s society, there will always be a need for landlines. Thank you for choosing Duo County Telephone as your Cooperative for these services.
