Fax

I have the Comcast triple play package. Is there a way to fax without having a fax machine? I have a printer/scanner/ copier but no fax machine.Do I have to sign up for one of the email to fax services or is there a way to do it in Comcast?

Comcast does not offer FAX services.  You will need to subscribe to a FAX service or purchase your own FAX machine and install it on your home wiring.

Re: Fax

Dear dwsweigart,

 

I have both an HP all in one and a Brother all in one (Print/Fax/Scan/Copy.)  We have 2 lines coming into our house, our home line and my office line.  

 

If I know someone needs to send a fax, or I need to sign something and fax it back, I've had no issues connecting my "all in one" right to my phone line,  and then I proceed with sending or receiving the fax and when I'm done, I just reconnect the phone line back into the phone.  

 

I'm surprised that your all in one has a scanner, but no fax.  That's rare.

 

Double check to make sure that your "all in one" doesn't have fax ability (and if it doesn't, Christmas is right around the corner  - you could always add it to the list!  Smiley Happy - although a fax machine is nice if you need one, but is one of those gifts that can be deemed a little too practical - like a vacuum cleaner!  

If your "all in one" has fax capability, then yes, you can use it with your Comcast line. I'm in sales, and I've seen a huge shift away from faxes to scans attached to emails.  I rarely use my fax anymore, but it's nice to have in a pinch.

 

I hope that helps. If you can get an "all in one" with a fax, it should work fine.

 

Thanks!
