The main reason that people "cut the cord" is for the money savings. After the many taxes and fees associated with having a landline, the cost of having one could usually averages $40 - $50 per month! That is a lot of money when you also have a cell phone in your pocket. Now that most wireless carriers have unlimited plans, watching those minutes is no longer an issue. You can now get a nationwide unlimited plan for around $50 per month, about 1/2 the price of the larger carriers. nTelos, which is headquartered in Virginia, uses their own infrastructure as well as the national Sprint infrastructure for nationwide unlimited coverage so you get the same nationwide service for less. We have used them since the 90's and have been very pleased. We also feel good about supporting Virginia based business's which keeps jobs and investment here. Another hidden tip is you can use a new or existing Verizon or Sprint phone and have it flashed (programmed) to nTelos. Combine these 2 tips together and that is a savings of about $100 PER MONTH or $1200 per year savings! Who wouldn't want that?
As for your alarm system, if there isn't a phone line we will switch the communication path so it is communicating over IP, WIFI, or cellular service. When we use the cellular service, it is independent of your cell phone and we are connecting directly to the cell towers. It does cost a little extra due to the fees from the cell carriers to use their network, but the net savings from dropping your landline outweighs it.
Determine if you need a landline from the points in the previous post. If you determine that a landline is not for you, contact us and we can schedule switching your communication path.
