Why a Landline in Your Home Might Be More Useful Than Your Mobile

By Julie Winters Subscribe to RSS | March 21st 2012 | Views:

The majority of people these days are more reliant on their mobile phones to make calls, even choosing to use their mobile handset when in their home and in easy grabbing range of their home phone. But by doing this, you could be racking up bills that are far in excess of what you would be paying if you were using a landline to make the same calls at the same time of the day.

Your Landline can offer you more than just a means to access the internet. Certain price plans can give you free calls every evening and weekend for a minimal monthly line rental charge and there are also bundle deals that entitle you to multiple services, such as phone, broadband and digital TV on one bill for a substantially discounted rate.

If you make the majority of your calls in the evening, a price plan that offers free calls after 6pm or 7pm should be ideal. There are some stipulations to these free call plans; if you phone call lasts longer than an hour, you will be charged for each minute over an hour the call lasts. To avoid incurring these charges the best thing to do is time your call and agree with the person you are speaking to that after 55 minutes you will hang up and ring them back.

Even if you live in a rural area that is unable to receive broadband through a phone line, having a home phone could still be worthwhile for making and receiving calls so you are not reliant on your mobile handset. As the government has allocated funding to improve the national broadband infrastructure, super-fast broadband should be made available in the next few years in areas where network upgrades have been deemed non-economically viable by companies like BT and Virgin Media that are spearheading the infrastructure improvements. If you have a phone line installed in your home, when fixed-line broadband services become available in your area, setting up a connection will be a simple and relatively hassle-free experience.

The best way to find a suitable home phone deal is to utilise the services available from a price comparison website. By just entering your postcode you can find out which deals from which providers are available to you, usually listed by the amount you should expect to pay per year. If you want to view results by the monthly line rental costs, doing so is a simple matter of clicking the column header. The results will shift to meet your requirements.

If you think that all a phone line is good for is providing a way to connect to the web, you are mistaken. Visit a home phone price comparison site and find out how much of a difference a landline deal could make for your pocket and lifestyle.
