Should My Small Business Still Have a Landline?

Many small business owners are conflicted when it comes to their landline. As they become increasingly outdated due to the advances in technology, small business owners are starting to consider their options when it comes to their phone system. Here are some things to think about before pulling the plug on your landline.

Connection and Cell Service Issues

A huge negative from ditching the traditional landline for your business is the possibility of internet issues with your new system. When you use the internet for anything, there is always a chance you will have connection issues. In addition, cell phone providers sometimes have a reputation for not being reliable.


Will you save money by getting rid of your landline and switching to newer technologies? In most cases, the answer is yes. The traditional landline systems typically require expensive hardware and can be a pain to install The new cloud-based VoIP phones are significantly cheaper and can be put into an office in a matter of minutes.

Better Availability

Traditional landlines are limited in the fact you have to be at your office to use it. Nowadays we have the ability with our phone systems to work from practically anywhere. In terms of availability and access, traditional landlines are outdated.


This should be a major consideration when trying to decide if you should get rid of your landline. Unfortunately, with cell phones and VOIP phone systems you may not always get the best connection. This is because you may be at a location that has a weak signal. If this is the case, you are not going to get the best clarity with your phone calls. In addition, you will probably have more dropped calls with the newer phone systems. In this case, the traditional landline is actually the better option.
