What is the difference between a traditional landline and a VoIP Voice connection?
VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) is an alternative to traditional landline phone service. Instead of phone coming through your landline connection, it is a voice line that comes in through your Internet connection. VoIP is a great way to save money when you have Internet service with FMTC. Traditional residential landlines are approximately $31 a month plus calling features and long distance. VoIP is approximately $19 a month and you will receive FREE calling features and the first 500 minutes of long distance each month for FREE!
Some key points to know: In most cases, there is no need to buy new phones, with the exception of rotary or very old phones. Your computer does not need to be on when you use your VoIP voice line and you will use your phone in the same way. It is important to note, that without a battery backup, your VoIP voice line will not work during a power outage, but battery backup options can be purchased through FMTC or you can provide your own.
