Chad Raney yes yes Traditional fax machines won't work, but ask Chad about E-Faxing, which allows you to send and receive faxes via email $160ish $22-? encrypted and hipaa complient

Chad bought Merritt's phone service. Customer service is his middle name. His VOIP phone service works well with pretty much any internet service except for satellite internet. (NO VOIP service works well with satellite internet because of the high latency). You can call him at 870-836-9409 or call/text his cell (520) 468-1197.

Available in most parts of Camden. You can lease a modem from them for $7/month or you can buy your own from eBay for about $30. Just make sure its "DOCSIS 3.0" or higher. I highly recommend the ARRIS MOTOROLA SURFBOARD SB6182.

I'd rather have a kidney stone than to have to call ATT or use their website. This is the last service I would recommend due to the horrible customer service (but our LOCAL techs are wonderful (Morgan, Kyle, Jason, Kevin, ...)

$70/month

(+Tax +Tax +Tax)

These prices include long distance to anywhere in america. I'm working on getting the price without long distance

This is what most people would call traditional phones. Technical people call it analog, or P.O.T.S. (plain old telephone service). ATT is trying to phase this service out. It's the most expensive per line, but they are the simplest. They work when the power is out. The voice quality is better than any VOIP line I've ever talked on. Fax machines work effortlessly. ATT's 800 number customer service is horrible but our LOCAL techs are wonderful (Morgan, Kyle, Jason, ...)
