Even though most people carry mobile phones, a lot of families like the convenience of a home phone line. Phone and cable companies charge a lot for home phone services. There is a new, more affordable way to have a home phone line. BasicTalk is only $9.99 a month (plus taxes and government fees) with no annual contract or hidden fees.
BasicTalk runs over your existing high-speed Internet connection and is a reliable alternative to costly home phone service offered by traditional carriers and cable companies, with average annual savings of more than $430.
You get all the features you like in a home phone, including:
- Crystal clear sound
- Caller ID
- Call Waiting
- 911 emergency service
You can even keep your current number! Most numbers can be transferred to BasicTalk. Find out about your number under basic tools and the Keep Your Number tab.
All you need for BasicTalk to work in your home is:
Wired high speed internet, an internet router, an active email address, a US billing/shipping address, and a payment method (credit, debit, or checking) that is associated with a U.S. billing address.
There is no extra software to install on your computer.
BasicTalk is EASY to install.
I recently received the BasicTalk Box™ so I could try the BasicTalk service. It is a small device that is SO EASY to install. All I had to do was connect the BasicTalk Box™ to my router and my phone was ready to make calls! It literally took longer for me to open the box and get the BasicTalk Box™ out than it did for me to hook it up and dial my first call. I’m talking less than 2 minutes.
Besides saving money on your home phone bills, I think one of the biggest advantages of BasicTalk is that you can take your BasicTalk Box™ with you anywhere you travel and you can use it virtually anywhere there is a high speed internet connection. You can’t do that with traditional home phone services!
My BasicTalk Box™ was up and running in no time. I was able to make local and long distance calls and got crystal clear sound on all of them. I compared the cost to what my local phone company charges for a landline, and the BasicTalk plan is nearly half the cost per month. That is unbeatable savings!
