Phone options

In 5 months I will be moving to a senior community. They sold me 3 phone jacks. Today I met with the security alarm system manager and he tells me that the alarm will work with a landline from Comcast, that no other phone company is running wire in that neighborhood. I thought Comcast only had the VOIP phone service. Can somebody enlighten me? Does Comcast offer landline?

Thanks

VOIP is considered a landline nowadays ( it is the service provider to your residence )

Thank you

 

 

You can click on my name (ComcastPhill) and click on “Private Message Me”. 

At the top of each Forum page you will see a small envelope 

This is the icon for Private Messages, referred to as ‘PM’s’. A Private Message is a way to communicate in private, to another User, Moderator, or Administrator out of public view in the Forums.

The gray envelope icon will have a number next to it if you have any new messages waiting. 

To open a PM to read it, double click on the envelope. If you click on the white envelope a window will open with tabs for your Private Message Inbox, Sent Messages, Friends, Ignored Users, and Compose new Message. You can also access this area by clicking on the Username in a Thread or post. By default, Private Messages are enabled. You can disable this feature in My Settings>Preferences> Private Messenger.
