Remaining to be one of the means of communication one home to another, landlines are still relevant. Here are four reasons why you still need a landline at home:

1. Landlines are very reliable.

Unlike smartphones with batteries that get drained after a period of time, with landlines, there’s no need to fret about battery life or load credits. Plus, in case of emergency situations, calling 9-1-1 and other hotlines are better done and faster using landlines because with this, authorities can also immediately pinpoint the caller’s location.

2. Strong connections.

Telebabad sessions are much more enjoyable with the strong connections of landlines. And much like your mobile phone, you can now also enjoy conversations anywhere at home with cordless landline phones offered by your service providers like PLDT Home. And in case you don’t know, there are handsets which can be used 300 meters away from its base if without interference.
