Cheapest Way to Keep Your Landline Number

If you’ve seen your landline bill go up over the years, you’re not alone.

Landline providers have been increasing prices and cutting service for years to encourage their customers to move to their internet-based phone service. This is accelerating after the recent FCC order that allows landline providers to eliminate service and increase rates even more.

Thankfully, Community Phone offers a number of cheap ways to keep your landline phone and phone number, with options to:

  • Set up new wireless landline phone service that doesn’t require internet or copper cables
  • Transfer your landline phone number to a cell phone
  • Forward calls to your landline phone number to another phone

All of these options allow you to eliminate your existing landline phone service, and cut the cord with your current provider.

Community Phone has helped thousands of customers end expensive contracts with the biggest landline providers in the United States such as AT&T, Verizon, Spectrum, and Xfinity, to name a few.

With affordable plans starting as low as $39/month, Community Phone is the cheapest landline phone service and can save you hundreds of dollars on installation costs, setup, and maintenance.

Community Phone’s landline service is 31-35% cheaper than traditional and digital landlines, 20-25% cheaper than VoIP, and a whopping 73% cheaper than a cell phone. Click the button below to learn how much you can save on your monthly or annual bill when you switch to Community Phone.
