Home phone service you can rely on, at a price you can afford.

Astound offers faster internet service, with speeds to 110 Mbps, and we’ve got great home phone service too.

With Astound Phone, you'll always get:

  • A clear and reliable phone line, that's much higher in quality than over-the-internet phone service
  • A dedicated phone line that is not tied to your internet or cable service so your phone calls are never affected by your other usage

How does it work?

Astound Phone is a broadband home phone service that works with the existing telephone wiring and the fiber-optic network already in your neighborhood. You can keep using your regular home phone handsets. If you want to make a call, simply pick up the receiver and dial.

Astound Phone uses digitally delivered packet cable technology to deliver carrier-grade IP telephony over a private network. That ensures a higher quality of service with consistent and significantly better audio because Astound Phone doesn't suffer performance issues that might result from dropped packets. For you, that means crystal clear sound, and no annoying echoes or sound delays.

It's easy to switch!

Switching to Astound Phone is easy. In most cases, you can keep your existing phone number. All that's needed to get you started is to have an Astound installation professional come out and install your telephony modem.
