Landline or POTS (plain old telephone service) is soon to become a thing of the past. There is a lot of buzz surrounding this topic right now, and really no need for me to rehash what’s already been said, and being discussed elsewhere. You can find the latest developments here. What I’d like to talk about here are some alternatives to landline phone service you can start using today.
Digital phone service is very similar to landline in the way one makes and receives phone calls, and also the calling features which work nearly the same way. Most users feel very at home, and comfortable using a digital phone service because of these similarities. There are three major providers of digital phone service. Cable companies, VoIP companies (like Vonage), and yes, your local landline provider.
