[DE] Cheap landline options in Delaware

My mother is 89 and she just was widowed. I am helping with her bills and notice that she has Comcast cable, and also a FIOS box in her basement. She is paying for all sorts of things she does not need. The FIOS Box is providing phone service. All she really needs is basic cable and telephone. My original thought is to keep Comcast cable and drop the FIOS landline and either replace with a verizon landline (and add a cheap pay per call long distance) or activate Comcast digital telephone on the cable line. Any recommendations on the most cost effective solution? Any solution has to be transparent to her. She does not need internet

Since she has FiOS, you should check out a phone/TV bundle with them and compare that to a phone/TV bundle from Comcast. Here in DC, VZ is offering it for $64.99 on a month-to-month. Comcast usually forces you to take a 2-year. Last time I looked at them, it was something like $70/mo.

I believe Verizon offers very cheap landline options for seniors. You may want to ask them about it.

I know you said "Landline" but there are inexpensive and free cell phone options for seniors.
