Today, more and more Brazilians are using cell phones and leaving their landlines aside. Fewer times we stay in our homes, which makes it difficult to use landlines. But have you ever thought you could put both in one product?
Most of the telephone operators in Brazil have launched plans that mix the cellular to the service of fixed telephony. In fact, it is a normal cellular plan, which uses a cellular device but with values similar to those used by a landline and creating possibilities, such as installing the internet in your home among others.
Slowly this type of service gains space. Basically, while you’re at home, it uses your landline for calls. Outside of it, it uses the cellular line, with different values for each of the services and the type of connection made. It is important to clarify with your service provider if the phone line connection is made via Wi-Fi, as is the case with some carriers. This is important because if this is the case, it is more valid for the user to have a cellular plan more in mind and to make the connections using VoIP programs, cheaper and much more competitive than telephone operators.
At the beginning of the provision of these services in Brazil, the biggest problem was the instability of the network, something that has at least been softened in recent times. Already the biggest advantage focuses on the issue of comfort: who never wanted to receive all the calls over a telephone only, wherever he is? The consumer prefers to use the cell phone than having to pick up fixed phone rum. And paying a little more or maybe the same price to have a cell phone that plays the role of the two is appealing to the vast majority of consumers.
What the customer needs to think about when acquiring this type of service is whether it really is worth it and if the person actually makes many calls to fixed numbers. If you have a business or home-run business, this product will serve your purpose well, since you have to get in touch with many landlines during the work day. Already an ordinary user, the choice needs more reflection, since not everyone nowadays needs to call landlines, being able to opt in most of the time for calling cell numbers.
Whether or not you choose this type of service, it is good to know that the operators think of the customer and try to provide more flexible products to different profiles.
