There is a lot of beauty in a Midwest winter. A white Christmas is a special thing, and there is a certain feeling of satisfaction as you crawl into your handmade snow fort. Though anyone who has lived in the area knows that with the beauty comes some difficulties. Snow drifts can reach taller than your car and ice covers power lines and roads.
Most people have a list of winter essentials, but a landline telephone often isn’t one of them. You’re probably thinking, “Well I have a cell phone, why would I need a landline?” We don’t blame you. Cell phones are great on the go and bring some of the best technology right to your fingertips. What most people don’t know is that cellular towers are not required to provide backup power. So, when we get hit with a Midwestern blizzard your cell phone may not work through a power outage. Great Plains Communications wants to shed some light on just a few of the advantages to having a landline telephone this winter.
- Security in an emergency, with consistent reliable 911 connections and the guarantee it will work through a power outage
- No need for batteries or charging when using a corded phone
- Elimination of potentially faulty connection and dropped calls
- Top-quality sound and clarity
Remember, if the power isn’t working in your home, most likely neither are your cordless phones. Keep your family safe this season and make sure you have a corded phone plugged into a wall-mounted phone jack. That way you can be sure to have a clear and reliable connection no matter what Old Man Winter throws our way.
