What is Digital Home Phone?

Digital Home Phone works pretty much the same as a landline, except instead of relying on phone wiring, it allows you to chat with your friends and family through your internet connection. VoIP or Voice over Internet Protocol technology works by transferring audio signals into digital signals and vice versa.

All packages include the following features you’d typically have to pay an arm or a leg for:

Call display – See who’s calling
Call forwarding – Pass it on or take a call on the go
Call waiting – We get it, you’re popular
Three-way calling – 3 is not always a crowd
Voicemail – You can even get recordings forwarded to your email

Cordless home phone.

Do you need to have Start.ca internet to sign up for Digital Home Phone?

The short answer is nope, you can sign up for Digital Home Phone without our internet service. That being said, we do highly recommend that you take a look at our awesome internet packages anyway.

Will I lose my Digital Home Phone connection if the hydro goes out?
