For reliability and clear calls, nothing beats plain old telephone service

POTS, the loving acronym for “plain old telephone service,” is the single oldest continuously operating network in existence. It predates even the earliest vestiges of the internet by three-quarters of a century. It’s so ubiquitous and so reliable that the notion of eliminating it is quite literally banned by law — it’s written into Section 214 of Title 47, the portion of the US Code established largely by the Communications Act of 1934: “No carrier shall discontinue, reduce, or impair service to a community, or part of a community, unless and until there shall first have been obtained from the Commission a certificate that neither the present nor future public convenience and necessity will be adversely affected thereby… .”

Cellular and smart phones have become a necessity for most of us. But if you have an emergency and you cannot communicate, would others be able to locate and know how to use your smart phone quickly, especially a young child? With a landline, young children and guests in your home know where to find the phone in case of an emergency, and help is a simple 911 phone call away. Your smart phone is worth keeping, and your CC Communications landline is a smart connection to keep.

Thinking about cutting the cord and using cellular? There are a lot of good reasons to have home phone service from CC Communications:

  1. 911 emergency location
  2. no dropped calls
  3. no dead cell phone batteries
  4. multiple extensions throughout the house
  5. unlimited local calling
  6. convenient calling features
  7. superior call quality, with no static or digital clipping
  8. home phone service is:
    • affordable
    • reliable
    • secure.
     

The more services from CC Communications you use, the more you save.

Residential Telephone Service is $18.00 per month, plus federal, state and local mandated fees and taxes. See rates here.

Universal Service Fund

For 80 years, the Congress of the United States has recognized consistently it is much more difficult and expensive to bring telephone service to rural communities and small towns than it is to connect urban centers such as Reno, Carson City and Las Vegas. A national policy known as “universal service” has enabled CC Communications to offer service in accordance with federal law that says all Americans should have access to “comparable telephone service at reasonable affordable rates” no matter where they live.

CC Communications charges $16.00 per month for residential telephone service. The local rate our customers pay provides about 20 percent of the revenue required for us to operate. If subscribers, minus any State or Federal cost recovery, had to bear the total cost of providing local telephone service across the rugged desert terrain of CC Communications’ 5,023 square mile service area, the local service rate would be $79.38 per month. For this reason alone, the State and Federal Cost Recovery Mechanisms are vital to CC Communications, as well as other rural telcos, in order to maintain affordable local rates and support investment in vital communications infrastructure.

The recovery mechanisms are tied to your local telephone line. To provide High-Speed Internet or Digital Television service to you without a telephone line by federal tariff would add $70.96 to $92.39 to the monthly rate for Internet service (based on bandwidth) and $70.96 to the rate for Digital TV service – rates much higher than the cost of a local telephone line.

FCC Battery Back-Up Disclosure


Maintaining Telephone Capability During Electrical Outages

CC Communications Fiber telephone service requires electrical power from your home to operate. IN THE EVENT OF A POWER FAILURE YOUR TELEPHONE SERVICE WILL NOT WORK, INCLUDING 911 AND ANY HOME SECURITY OR MEDICAL MONITORING THAT RELIES ON YOUR TELEPHONE SERVICE UNLESS YOU HAVE A BATTERY BACKUP. In the past, CC Communications often included a backup battery complimentary to customers with telephone. However, CC Communications did not represent that such complimentary batteries were, or in the future would be, included with the service. If your CC Communications equipment has a backup battery and you subscribe to CC Communications’ Battery Backup monitoring service, CC Communications will provide a replacement for you when necessary. If your CC Communications equipment has a backup battery, but you do not subscribe to Battery Backup monitoring service, it is your sole responsibility for monitoring and replacing the backup battery when necessary. If your CC Communications equipment currently does not have a backup battery or if your battery needs to be replaced, you are responsible for making your own decision about whether to supply backup power for your telephone services. EVEN WITH BATTERY BACKUP, A POWER OUTAGE WILL PREVENT YOUR INTERNET FROM WORKING.

Cordless telephones require power and will not function during a power outage even if you have a backup battery for your CC Communications equipment. CC Communications recommends that in addition to having a backup battery that you also maintain one corded phone connected directly to your in-home wiring for use in the event of a power failure. Additionally, you should always have an alternative means of dialing 911, such as a mobile telephone.

If you have a monitored home alarm or monitored medical device (caretaker sentry) that uses CC Communications telephone or internet service as the communications pathway, your monitored alarm will work as follows:

  • Pots – works with battery backup
  • VoIP – you would need LTE backup or will not work in power outage
  • Wi-Fi – you would need LTE backup or will not work in power outage

Note that you still must maintain your Caretaker Sentry internal device battery, and Caretaker Sentry will always be connected to a traditional phone line (not VoIP).

It is recommended that you subscribe to an alternative communications pathway such as cellular backup for your monitored alarm.

CC Communications shall have no liability for the failure of your services, including 911 services, to function during a power outage, including failure due to the absence or insufficiency of battery backup power.

Performance and Monitoring of Your ONT Battery

The batteries provided by CC Communications are rated to last for at least 8 hours in idle mode, when the battery is new. Up to 3 batteries may be purchased to provide 24- hour back-up. Multiple 8-hour batteries must be rotated by the customer to attain longer periods of back-up. The 8-hour SLA (Sealed Lead Acid) battery can generally sit on a shelf at room temperature with no charging for up to a year when at full capacity, but is not recommended. SLA (Sealed Lead Acid) batteries should be charged at least every 6 months to 9 months.

The battery is intended to enable users to make short, emergency or other urgent telephone calls. During an extended power outage, use your telephone service sparingly to preserve your battery life. The actual length of time that your telephone service will be available during a power outage depends on many variables, including, but not limited to: the amount of phone usage when the service is utilizing power from the backup battery; whether the backup battery is properly installed and charged, such as whether it has had an opportunity to fully recharge after a prior outage; the condition and age of the backup battery; and the amount of prior usage of the battery. Batteries lose capacity with age. The estimated life for a new battery is 3-5 years; however, actual results will vary depending on usage patterns, load, frequency of power outages, and environmental conditions, including temperature extremes and fluctuations. Failure to adhere to proper storage and usage conditions will reduce the talk time available to you in an outage and the lifespan of your battery.

To determine if the battery you have needs to be replaced, find the installation type and battery type installed with your equipment below and follow the instructions.

Available Backup Power Options

CC Communications offers new batteries for purchase by its telephone customers for $50.00 for an Optical Network Terminal (ONT) battery. There may be an additional fee for the installation of the battery. Batteries are rated to last for at least 8 hours in idle mode, when the battery is new. Up to 3 batteries may be purchased to provide 24-hour back-up. Please contact CC Communications at 775-423-7171 extension 1022 for more information or to order a battery.

Warranty Information

If within the first 12 months after you receive a battery purchased from CC Communications, you notify CC Communications that the battery is not working properly, CC Communications will install a replacement battery at no additional cost to you.

Battery Backup Plan

CC Communications Battery Backup Plan is an optional program that covers the replacement of CC Communications installed backup batteries for a small monthly fee.

What's covered:

Replacement of backup batteries used with Fiber fed locations, battery and labor.

Why should I sign-up for Battery Backup?

A typical service call without Battery Backup is chargeable unless it is determined the issue was caused by CC Communications equipment (a trip for a bad battery is chargeable). This Plan will cover the cost of the service to replace a bad battery, as well as the cost of the battery. The backup batteries for fiber fed telephone service are $50.00.

For only $6.99 per month, the Battery Backup Plan provides relief from service call charges and ensures that you will have backup power for your telephone service in the event of a power outage.

Plan Terms

The Plan takes effect immediately upon enrollment. The Plan has a minimum commitment of 12 months. A $50.00 early cancellation charge will apply if the plan is terminated within the 12-month period. After the initial 12 months, the plan renews on a month-to-month basis and may be cancelled at any time.

Special Circumstances

Customers in apartments, condos and other multi-unit housing must consult with their residential management or landlord prior to ordering the Plan to determine if CC Communications’ technicians are permitted to install and/or replace battery back-up.
