Fewer choices in Canada. Rogers cable offers VOIP but price is too high. I dropped landline with Bell Canada after more than 40 years and they made no effort to keep me as a "valued" customer! Bell bill was almost $50 per month.
Bought Ooma. $14 per month Canada wide and USA calls are included. Voice mail too! Fax is tricky and requires some testing but once set properly works fine. No regrets on this choice!

In suburban Philadelphia, a summer storm knocked out power to my area for 3.5 days. We had FIOS at the time and yes, that battery back-up lasts 18 hours max. Verizon refused to add a second battery. We switched to an alternate provider and ran DSL over Verizon's installed copper.
Now I live several miles away, in a borough, still running DSL over Verizon copper. The house came with FIOS equipment installed, and if we hadn't already had a provider Verizon would have forced us onto FIOS. I am required to have a landline as a freelance medical interpreter. Hurray for alternatives!

My home security system, while not new, is landline based, and directly connected to the Police department, 3 blocks away. Between it, and the German Shepherds on patrol in this home, I doubt any burglar would get away with much :)

As an senior-aged woman, living alone, I will continue to pay for this sense of security as long as I can continue to pay for it.
