Important things to know. 

Copper landline. 

Wireless doesn't come with a copper landline. Some equipment and services using your current landline may not work on Wireless, such as phones for the hearing and sight impaired, and phones used for other disabilities or conditions. 

Wireless landline. 

Wireless landline requires power to operate. During a power outage you won't be able to use the landline to call emergency services. We recommend having a charged mobile phone handy for emergencies.

Staying connected. 

If you're concerned about staying connected, or someone in your household relies on a landline for medical, safety or disability reasons, get in touch.
