Good

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.

Maybe telco fiber, i.e. FIOS is reliable if you have backup power locally for it. However, Verizon is NOT getting rid of their copper plant, so you can keep copper, unless of course you're in lower Manhattan, where the copper plant was destroyed.
