With our RBI plans, you can also get rid of your copper based landlines and use voice over RBI.
RBI Voice requires mains power and usually not suitable for 111 emergency service, phone directory listings, health lines, and old security alarm systems. If you dial 111, the call will go through but the operator will not know your physical location.
Unlimited 3G plan is also eligible for the RBI Voice package but due to a different technology used, it will require extra equipment – an Analog to Telephone Adapter (ATA), for a one-off fee of $100.
Voice is only available for areas with confirmed good signal
Well, not the rotary phone… but you get the idea!
