2016 Wireless Home Phone versus Wireless Cell Phone

I am just curious about the 2 options: Wireless Home Phone (WHP) and Wireless Cell Phone (WCP). The Wireless Home Phone plan is only $30/month for Unlimited Canada-wide Calling. The WHP uses Rogers wireless network, so does the WCP, so I assume they both use the same kind of wireless technology (I might be wrong).

Rogers does not have the following plan, but if it does, Unlimited Canada-wide Calling for WCP would likely cost 10 times more, which is $300/month. Why is that ?

Unlike a WCP device, I know it would be cumbersome to carry around the WHP equipment (handset, Rogers portable WHP device & charger), but still, why would the WCP plan (unlimited calling) be much much more expensive than the WHP plan (unlimited calling) ?

Thanks for clarifying.

Re: 2016 Wireless Home Phone versus Wireless Cell Phone

Hello @PCao!

 

Thanks for reaching out to the Community Forums,

Wireless Home Phone and Wireless Cell Phone are both wireless cellular technology.

 

To give you a little bit of information about the services. Both plans have in-market Canadian long distance available. Their pricing are not related because they are two different products.

 

In fact, if you have a Share Everything / Share Everything Plus plan for Wireless Cellphone, you can add Wireless Home Phone for $13 dollars instead of stand alone $30.

 

Hope that helps.

 

Cheers,
