That’s good to know because my parents are always out of the house nowadays, and the only means of communication that they can think of is through phone calls. Since we didn’t really require the service of a telephone before, I’m thinking that now is the best time to have installed in the house. Thanks. I’ll talk to my parents about this. Hopefully, we can get phone service as soon as possible.
