Home Phone Service

How does a current Comcast Internet subscriber get home phone service. Several times I have requested home phone service and never received the self installation kit, when I called or e-mailed customer service always says it on it way, three weeks into it I finally got feed up and cancelled the order. Researching the availability for other home phone providers I learned Comcast is the only provider in my village.

Re: Home Phone Service

If you have internet service you can just get vonage to do voice over IP http://www.vonage.com/

Vonage is great if you call india or overseas a lot since it has a plan with lots of free international calling.

 

You can also use google voice, that lets you make calls easily from the computer, but you can also set up a voice over ip box with google voice.

Google voice is free for now to call in the US.

 

You can buy hardware from amazon to plug your phone into google voice

If you have internet you can do voice over IP.
