Tips to Save Money on Home Phone Bills
SHARE:  

At times, it may seem to be a waste paying for home phone bills on top of a mobile phone plan

. However, if you have come to the realisation that a home phone is indeed necessary for certain emergency cases and for keeping your mobile phone bill in check, then the first thing you need to do is research the various providers.



Nonetheless, there is a lot more to simply searching for a provider that "tick all the boxes", as you could be paying far more than you need to.



Comparing Home Phone Line Plans



The first tip to start off with is comparing home phone service providers. Not all phone companies are the same, which means that you need to compare various plans side by side.



By comparing different plans you will be able to see which options work better for your needs and at a cost that isn't going to blow the monthly budget. The more proactive you are in this initial search, the lower your phone bill may be at the end of the month.



Items to compare within the plan are:

Line rental costs

National call costs

Local call costs

If any free calls are included

If there are any contracts required

International call costs

Termination or plan change fees





What to Look for in a Provider



It's important to review not only the home phone plan, but also the company that will be providing the service.

Consider these following questions as well when making your comparisons:



Do they offer other services like mobile and internet that you can bundle together to save money?

Do they even service your area?

Do they have good customer service?

Are they a well known company?



Reduce Unnecessary Charges



There are many ways to reduce unnecessary home phone line charges. One way is to pay for your own landline handset instead of renting one from the telephone company. It may be a larger investment at the time, but over a period of time, purchasing your handset will be much less expensive than renting.



Another way to reduce charges is by relying on your mobile phone if calling nationally. If you receive free calls on your mobile phone during the weekend or after a certain hour on the weekdays, you should use your mobile phone to make phone calls rather than your landline.



If you have free long distance calling on your mobile phone, do not call long distance on your main phone line as this may rack up unnecessary costs.



Be wise when it comes to home phone line plans and usage. Even if you are currently with one home phone providers, it may be worthwhile to start looking at other plans to switch over. After all, it's never too late to start saving
