Digital Telephone Service Offers Many Advantages

By: Julia Hall

You have probably noticed that most cable television companies are now offering many services besides just cable television. Thanks to many advances in technology, cable companies have been able to combine a lot of related services, thus making it easier for their customers to enjoy both a greater variety of services and much greater convenience than ever before.

Though you are probably familiar with the fact that you can get high speed Internet access through cable companies, you might not be as familiar with the digital telephone services that are being offered. However, you will definitely want to look into these services because they have the potential to save you a lot of time and money, and they offer some of the best combination of services that you can find. Digital telephone service offers all of the standard options that any regular telephone company offers, but it also includes a lot of extras. In fact, most people who make the switch to cable-based telephone service find that they spend a lot less money but get a lot more of the services that they want.

One of the best things about this type of telephone service is that you get unlimited local and long distance minutes for one set price.

Using the telephone has long been an act of faith that you would actually be able to afford the phone bill at the end of the month. Now you don't have to worry about how much the bill will be anymore. Cable based phone service gives you the ability to talk as long as you want to whoever you want in the US and Canada without being charged for the long distance minutes. Most plans, however, do charge you for international calls, but the rates are so low that you can talk a lot without worries about running up your phone bill.

In addition to worry free long distance, digital telephone service gives you a lot of calling features for free that generally cost a lot extra through conventional telephone companies. Pretty much everyone uses features like call waiting and caller ID these days, and both of these features are included in cable based plans. You will also find nearly a dozen other features such as call forwarding, speed dial, call blocking, and three way calling. In fact, there are enough features that you might find that you can't even use all of them. But, since they are all included in the low plan cost, you don't have to feel guilty about it! One of the most exciting features that you will find in these digital telephone plans is voice mail. If you have ever used a voice mail account, you know how convenient it is to be able to check messages while you are away from home. This system is even better because it also allows you to check your messages through the Internet. This keeps the most options open and available for you to use.

Of course, convenience is also a factor when deciding to choose one of these services. Because you probably already get your cable and maybe even your Internet service through a cable company, getting your phone service through the same company has the potential to save you a lot of trouble. Check into your local company's services and see what sort of telephone service they offer. You might just find that you get a much better service at a much lower price than you are getting right now.
