Well hold you horses because Google, the supreme mugwump of the Internet age has something new to offer to the denizens of some cities of U.S.Google introduces “Fiber Phone” a new landline service which offers all features a home phone service has to with additional new features.
It is quite absurd that with the power the mobile phones come packed with today ,what really is the point of a telephone landline service.One might generally think of a home-phone to be an antique corded service hanging on to a wall but, google plans on changing their angle of approach with the “Fiber Phone” which could prove to be important and useful to few families.Google’s idea is simply to bring the service up to speed with this “mobile” world and possibly prove as a worthwhile introduction.
Some of the many features include unlimited local and nationwide calling,same affordable rates as Google Voice on international calls.Some other basic features such as call waiting , 911 services , Caller ID are also included.It also offers to ability to carry on an older phone number or to pick a new one.Another new feature includes the transcribing of voice messages which can be sent as text or mail ,quite similar to a voicemail.All this comes at just a price tag of 10$/month and it does look like a good deal .
