Is Spectrum Voice good?

Between smartphones and video calling services, it’s understandable if you forgot landline phone service was still a thing.

If you need an affordable option for international phone calls, Spectrum Voice, which is the provider’s no contract landline service, offers great overseas call coverage. But you’ll have to jump through more hoops than you’d expect to get the service.

Spectrum Voice pros and cons

Pros

Free unlimited calling in North America
Affordable international call rates

Cons

Requires Spectrum TV or internet service

Spectrum Voice plans and bundles

Spectrum doesn’t offer Spectrum Voice as a standalone package, so you’ll have to bundle with Spectrum Internet® or TV packages in order to get your landline phone set up.

By combining Spectrum telephone service with an Internet or TV bundle, you can save money and won’t have to worry about paying multiple bills to different providers.

But Spectrum’s bundle restriction can be a hassle if your biggest priority is home phone service. Although Spectrum Voice’s $12.99 per month when bundled rate is among the lowest compared to other providers, the cheapest Spectrum Voice bundle (TV Select + Voice) still costs $57.98 per month for the first year.

Spectrum’s bundle rule also makes it difficult to buy Spectrum Voice unless you’re also looking for TV or internet service or are almost done with your current provider contract.

Spectrum Voice features

With Spectrum Voice, you’ll get unlimited calling to most of North America including the US, Mexico, Canada, and Puerto Rico. For an extra $5 per month, you can add unlimited international calls to more than 70 countries including Hong Kong, Spain, and the United Kingdom.

Along with its local and international coverage, Spectrum Voice also includes multiple incoming call screening, robocall blocking, and online management features for free:

  • Voicemail
  • Readable voicemail
  • Forward all or selected calls
  • Set backup phone
  • VIP ring
  • 3-way calling
  • Repeat dialing
  • Caller ID on TV
  • Block unwanted callers
  • Forward calls when busy
  • Trace call
  • Call Guard

Spectrum Voice equipment

Your Spectrum Voice subscription includes a phone modem that connects Spectrum’s phone network to your home. Depending on your Spectrum bundle, you might get a combo phone and internet modem that will support both Spectrum services.

You won’t need to install any additional hardware, and the modem is included with your Spectrum Voice fee.

Final take

Even if Spectrum Voice costs only $12.99 by itself when bundled, Spectrum’s mandatory bundle requirements means you’ll have to add TV or Internet service for at least $45.00 more per month.

But if you’re already looking for internet or TV service and need an affordable way to call overseas family or friends, Spectrum Voice’s unlimited coverage across North America, low international rates, and features like caller ID and readable voicemails could make the service a strong fit for your house.
