Whether it’s calling mom or ordering take-out, we rely on our phones to help reach the people and things that matter.
And while mobile phones have pushed us toward the future, home phone service is still important to many families.
Landlines can be familiar, reliable and provide high-quality service, but the technology hasn’t always kept up. That’s why today, we’re introducing Fiber Phone as a new option to help you stay connected wherever you are.

Familiar features, improved
Fiber Phone is meant to give you everything you want from a home phone service, plus a lot more.
For $10/month, you get unlimited local and nationwide calling, and the same affordable rates as Google Voice for international calls.
You can keep your old phone number, or pick a new one. You can use call waiting, caller ID, and 911 services just as easily as you could before. Fiber Phone can also make it easier to access your voicemail—the service will transcribe your voice messages for you and then send as a text or email.
Stay connected, no matter where you are
Fiber Phone can help you make the most of your home phone—even when you’re not at home.
Adding Fiber Phone means getting access on the road, in the office, or wherever you are. Your Fiber Phone number lives in the cloud, which means that you can use it on almost any phone, tablet or laptop.
It can ring your landline when you’re home, or your mobile device when you’re on-the-go. We’ll be introducing Fiber Phone in a few areas to start.
Over time, we’ll roll out Fiber Phone as an option to residential customers in all of our Fiber cities. Once we bring the service to your area, you can sign up and get the service through a simple installation process.
