There are many little-known benefits to having a landline phone service from CenturyLink. From excellent call quality to providing another line of communication if your cell phone gets lost, home phone service is a great fit for any household.
Because home phones deliver superb voice quality across any distance. Say goodbye to “sorry, you’re breaking up” and hello to “I hear you loud and clear.”

Mobile phones share location data based on the nearest cell tower, but landlines provide your street address. First responders will be provided your home phone street address in case of an emergency.
Do you still write to your pen pal from middle school? Do you call your grandma more than twice a year? Whether it’s email, phone, or good ol’ snail mail, some people keep in touch better than others.
So, how well does your state keep up on communications? If you’re Nebraska, you’re the chattiest of them all. If you’re in Idaho or New Hampshire, you fall under the recluse category.
On average, Americans spend about 45 minutes per day talking, texting, and emailing. Nebraska averages over 58, meanwhile, Idaho and New Hampshire average just under 34 minutes a day.
Data sourced and analyzed from 2015-2019 American Time Use Survey (ATUS)
In Nebraska, the #1 chattiest state, people spend nearly an hour a day giving a friend a ring, shooting emails, and putting letters in the mail.
Every year, the average New Mexican spends a total of 14 days, 21 hours, and 42 minutes talking to their loved ones. That’s enough time to drive across the US roughly two times (if you’re driving 8 hours per day).
Utah isn’t big on phone usage or allocating their time conversing, but the state is also home to five National Parks, which could be the reason why people prefer stunned silence.
On average, women spend 50 minutes per day communicating, while men spend only 37. For women, that totals over 304 hours a year—a.k.a. enough time to fly around the world six times.
Of all the states we analyzed, New Hampshire spends the least time chatting—a mere 33 minutes a day. Over the course of a year, that adds up to 204 hours or 8.5 days. In other words, New Hampshirites spend only 2.3% of their time each year reaching out.
To see how many hours a day Americans are chatting on the phone, emailing their family, or sending mail to their friends, the team at Internet Service Partners analyzed data from the 2014-2018 American Time Use Survey (ATUS) by state. The data did not include any time on telephone, mail, or email related to work.
Alaska, Wyoming, and North Dakota were not included because their estimates did not meet the ATUS standard for quality and reliability. Some states shared the same amount of “chat” time, and as such, tied.
