For reliability and clear calls, nothing beats plain old telephone service

POTS, the loving acronym for “plain old telephone service,” is the single oldest continuously operating network in existence. It predates even the earliest vestiges of the internet by three-quarters of a century. It’s so ubiquitous and so reliable that the notion of eliminating it is quite literally banned by law — it’s written into Section 214 of Title 47, the portion of the US Code established largely by the Communications Act of 1934: “No carrier shall discontinue, reduce, or impair service to a community, or part of a community, unless and until there shall first have been obtained from the Commission a certificate that neither the present nor future public convenience and necessity will be adversely affected thereby… .”

Cellular and smartphones have become a necessity for most of us. But if you have an emergency and you cannot communicate, would others be able to locate and know how to use your smartphone quickly, especially a young child? With a landline, young children and guests in your home know where to find the phone in case of an emergency, and help is a simple 911 phone call away. Your smartphone is worth keeping, and your CC Communications landline is a smart connection to keep.
