Why Should Your Next Phone System Be Cordless?
Hello for 1-2001
By: Mike Lipshultz

So, just why would you want a cordless phone system over a ďhardĒ wired system?  Can you say no wires! Hey if you have phone jacks for every line and in every place you need them, and you donít need to walk around with the phone, then who needs cordless....  But if you donít have those phone jacks everywhere, and donít like the idea of paying the phone company almost $100.00 per hour to put them in..... Then go cordless.

Even if your all set with all the wiring you need, you may still wish to go wireless.  Think about these things:

As you can see, going Cordless does have a lot of advantages over corded.

Now you only need to figure out if you should be using 900 MHz or 2.4 GHz.

A good quality DIGITAL cordless phone on either 900 MHz or 2.4 GHz will go about the same deference in the real world.  In some instances one does have advantages over the other.

Line of sight.

If your looking to cover a very large area with no obstructions I would go with the 2.4 GHz unit over the 900 MHz.

It's all concrete and bricks.

If your going to be using the unit in a building made with a lot of Concrete, Bricks, or Steal, go with the 900 MHz unit.

Other sources of interference.

900 MHz units have been around a lot longer then the 2.4 GHz units.  Right now it is easy to argue that you are more likely  to get outside interference on the 900 MHz unit then the 2.4 GHz unit.  However things are changing.  Almost all new "cordless" devises are moving to the 2.4 GHz range.  This includes the new "Blue Tooth" items.  So in no time at all the 2.4 GHz band will be just as crowded.
