There's no point to fiber or cable phone. If you want something reliable, get copper, if not, cell phones and/or voip is fine.
I don't know about that. My phone company is going to discontinue their copper as soon as they can. I am going to get their phone service over fiber as soon as I can. It may not be as cheap as your typical voip service, but it is going to be a whole lot more reliable with unparalleled service. If it stops working, they will come out and fix it the same day for no charge. The no hassle is worth it.
