Affordable Telephone Service
People in Chi-Town may be surprised to hear you talk about your local landline phone service company because most Chicagoans have moved-on to cell tower technology, leaving the landlines of RCN Chicago's phone services behind. But, while cell phones offer great convenience and exciting features, a quality cellular signal can be hard to find. When thinking about phone service, one important factor to consider is that cell phone call quality can be negatively affected by everyday occurrences, even the wind! So when inclement weather hits The Windy City (which happens on a regular basis) Chicagoans may have to depend on our good ol' digital landline telephone service. You already know RCN carries premium digital cable and high-speed Internet services. Now get to know the security, convenience and affordability of RCN Chicago's residential phone service.
Unlimited Nationwide Calling Service
Not only do some of the other services in your home depend on landline telephone service, Chicagoans can depend on it to stay connected, too! RCN local phone services bring quality sound and uninterrupted nationwide calling in Chicago-Land. Our quality digital network is always on and ready to connect you to loved ones from Northern California, to Southern Louisiana, or to Eastern Maine. Our Unlimited Nationwide calling plan covers calls anywhere in the United States (including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and Canada). Our Chicago residential phone service allows you to call as many people and talk as long as you like for an affordable, flat monthly rate with no per-minute charges or calling restrictions.
Local Home Phone Calling Features
RCN Chicago's home phone services offer the most reliable quality service at unmatched affordability. What makes our telephone service more affordable than other phone service providers? Our Unlimited Nationwide Calling plan comes with five of the most popular calling features â€“ free! Other phone service companies will charge up $5 per month extra for each of the features we include in our home telephone service packages at no additional cost. Our Chicago home phone service customers get clear calls, increased connection reliability, and five free calling features.
Our Basic Voicemail is one of our free calling features included with Chicago telephone service plans. With RCN, there is no need for an answering machine with limited recording capacity. Easily listen to digitally recorded messages from your missed callers and save up to 20 messages at a time.
Our residential phone service also includes Call Waiting which provides you the convenience of answering a second phone call when you are already on the phone. Callers will never hear a busy tone again. You will hear a beep letting you know the second caller is on the line. This gives you the opportunity to put the first caller on hold to answer the second call, or ignore the second call and let it go to the digital voicemail service.
With two great Major League Baseball teams calling Chi-Town their hometown, even friendly phone conversations can turn heated without clear resolution in sight. To settle the score, our customers can easily add an out-of-state, neutral third-party to their traditional two-way phone call. Get three conversations in one with our Three-Way Calling feature included in your RCN Chicago phone service.
