Sprint deploys land-line DECT-based cord-cutting service

updated 08:04 pm EST, Thu November 7, 2013

System uses Sprint Wireless network for telephony

Sprint is deploying a system to make it simpler to cut the cord on traditional landlines. The new system, the Sprint Phone Connect System 1, offers homeowners and small business customers two cordless phones for $50 with a new line or eligible upgrade and two-year service agreement. When bundled with the Sprint Phone Connect plan, customers get unlimited local and domestic long-distance calling while on the Sprint network for $20 per month.

Sprint Phone Connect System is a fixed wireless voice terminal that provides high-quality home and office phone service using the Sprint cellular network instead of a landline or broadband connection for their home or desk phone. This all-in-one device eliminates the need for additional devices or equipment. It allows business and consumer users to replace their landline service and maintain the features they are accustomed to from a landline phone provider, such as voicemail, call waiting, caller ID, call forwarding, three-way calling, and call restriction.

This easy-to-use system includes two Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunication (DECT) phones and can support up to four handsets with additional handsets sold separately, making it scalable for a family or small business. The Sprint Phone Connect System does not need to be plugged into a wall jack or other devices in order to make a phone call. Users have the option of maintaining their existing home or office phone number, or activating a new one.
