What is the
difference between broadband phone service and traditional landline phone
Traditional landline phone service is brought into your
home or business on a separate wire that connects you directly to the Public
Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). ChiliTech Digital Voice connects you to the
PSTN through your existing broadband Internet connection, which allows you to
combine the advantages of connecting to the PSTN with greatly reduced costs and
cutting-edge features. Additionally, ChiliTech Digital Voice service is
portable - it can be used from any location with a broadband Internet
connection! Because you can take your Digital Voice service with you when you
travel, 911 service functions differently than it does with regular landline
phone service. For more information on the E911 service provided with ChiliTech
Digital Voice services, please visit our E911 information page.
