California landline phone service FAQs

What are my landline phone service options in California?

If you're looking for traditional landline phone service in California the type of phone service provided through copper wires and phone jacks in your wall you won't be able to find it in California for much longer.

The main phone service providers in California are AT&T, Xfinity, Cox, Verizon FiOS, Spectrum, Mediacom, Suddenlink, and Frontier. None of these traditional providers offer copper wire-based landline phone service.

Instead, they offer internet-based VoIP (voice over internet protocol) service; that means if your internet is slow or goes down (or you don't have internet), you can't use your phone.

In fact, by a 2019 FCC order (FCC Order 10-721A), traditional landline phone service will not be available anywhere in the country starting on August 2, 2022. All copper wire landline service provided by traditional carriers in the country will be replaced with internet-based service, such as FiOS or other VoIP providers.

Who are the main landline phone service providers in California?

The main landline service providers in California are AT&T, Xfinity, Cox, Verizon FiOS, Spectrum, Mediacom, Suddenlink, and Frontier. All of these either require an internet connection, or a bundle with cable or internet services.

Can I get landline phone service in California that doesn't require access to the internet?

Yes. Community Phone is the only landline service provider in California that does not require the internet to work. Community Phone works by connecting your landline phone to cell towers, rather than through the internet.

Is there strong cell coverage in California?

Instead of copper wire or internet-based phone service, Community Phone provides landline phone service in California through your local cell towers.

In California, there are 922 cell towers located throughout the state. Community Phone will connect your landline phone to the cell tower with the strongest connection.

Overall, California has an average of 87.07% coverage across the four main carriers.

According to cellularstatus.com, Verizon has strong coverage in California with 93.20%, while T-Mobile covers 90.90%.

Approximately 19,227.54 square miles of California have access to cell coverage, meaning Community Phone service will work almost anywhere in the state.

California is the 20th state for cell reception ahead of Colorado, Idaho, Oregon, and Oklahoma, but behind New York.

Is copper wire landline service more reliable than wireless-based landline service?

This may have been true in the past, but not anymore. Because copper wire is being phased out across the country, providers have left their lines in a state of disrepair. That means there are frequent service interruptions, even at the best of times. It also means that during a power outage, copper wire phone service is very likely to go down as well. Major providers are much more concerned with maintaining and improving their wireless towers and providing quality, consistent cellular service, and are not interested in even maintaining their copper wire service as they phase it out completely in 2022.

Can I get traditional landline phone service (copper wire POTS) available in California?

No, there are no providers in California who still provide copper wire landline phone service. Traditional landline phone service will not be available anywhere in the country starting August 2, 2022, according to FCC Order 10-721A.
