Update service plan, and compare providers
NOTE: The tasks and timings shown here for your Telecommunication Rates are based on a single-family home (owned), located in Massachusetts, United States, with priority set at ‘1 star' or higher, for all possible goals.
If you set your personalization differently in your Home Wizard app, then you may get reminders for different tasks and timings in your recommended home care program for your Telecommunication Rates.
Begin by checking your rates with your current telephone service provider. Most providers have the ability to review your usage patterns and to suggest a service program that can provide you the best value.
Also ask them what you can do to get your rates down (e.g. combining long distance and cellular services, avoiding long distance during peak rate periods, etc.).
And take the opportunity to shop around for other telephone service providers. You can find these on the Internet, yellow pages, etc.
