How does home phone service work?
1. Xplornet’s home phone is an IP telephone system.
This means that Xplornet Internet service is required for the phone service to work. We therefore install a telephone modem on your Xplornet system. This means you can keep your telephone handsets and even your telephone number.*
2. What happens if my Internet is out of order or if there is a power failure?
This is the only inconvenient aspect of IP telephony. Your home phone will be out of service for the duration of the power failure. You will therefore need your cell phone to make calls during this period.
3. Does an IP telephone system use much Internet data?
No, your telephone system requires very little monthly Internet data. There is no need to change your Internet plan when you add home phone. In fact, it’s possible to talk on the phone for about 37 hours with one gigabyte (GB) of Internet data.
4. Are fast speeds required for a telephone conversation?
No, Xplornet’s telephone system requires very little speed. It’s therefore possible to take calls even at very low speeds.
5. Where do I check my voicemail messages?
