In light of recent cellular network outages, we wanted to bring your attention to our VoIP solutions and remind everyone of their advantages when your cell service is down and why you should consider getting one for your home.Imagine this: you're in the middle of a video call, while simultaneously texting another friend, and then, suddenly silence. Your cellular network decides to take a nap. You're left contemplating the meaning of life without a stable connection.During a network outage, you may have trouble making phone calls, video calls and texting. You may even have trouble contacting emergency services. Cellular outages occur more often than you may think.

In the past 15 days alone there have been a reported 360 cellular outages across the United States (Consumer Cellular, 2024).

With how common outages can be, it's important to have an alternative communication solution to make sure you can still make phone calls to your friends and family.

What is VoIP?

Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) allows you to make phone calls using the Internet instead of traditional phone lines. It converts your voice into digital signals that travel over the Internet, allowing you to make calls using your computer, smartphone or a special VoIP phone.We recommend our Entry-Level IP Phone with 2 lines and HD Voice, the Yealink SIP-T31P. Why? Because this phone features built-in Power over Ethernet (PoE) and superb high-definition (HD) sound quality, and with its ease-of-use, powerful features and reasonable price, you’ll get an excellent voice communications solution.

No Battery Anxiety

We all know that anxious feeling when your cell phone battery reaches five percent. Now imagine your power goes out and your phone soon goes too. This is where our VoIP solution differs. With a built-in 24-hour backup battery, it is unaffected by the temporary power outage to your home.

A Retro Charm

There's an undeniably satisfying charm in having a phone that combines the retro aesthetic of landlines with the luxurious technological advancements of today.  The physical buttons and the twirling cord provide a tactile satisfaction that a touch screen simply can’t do. It's a seamless blend of nostalgia and functionality.
