To find out what Verizon home plans are available in a certain ZIP code, an individual can enter a location in the search function on the Verizon website. Verizon offers local, regional and long distance phone service but not in all areas.
Local calling services through Verizon refer to any calls made from a home phone to an immediate calling radius, which is determined by the chosen plan. Regional calls, often referred to as local toll calls, are calls made from the home to a number outside of the immediate local calling radius but not to a number considered to be long distance. The radius for local and regional areas is determined by the federal government, not by Verizon. Long distance calls include any call placed to a location outside of the local or regional calling radius. This may include calls made within the state, within the country or international calls.
There are also add-ons that Verizon offers to its customers, such as international calling plans. This is an ideal option for those who have friends or family overseas who are called fairly often. Verizon also offers calling features such as voice mail and offers 99 percent network reliability. In most cases, a person may also find that the most affordable Verizon home phone plans are those that are bundled with other services, such as home television service.
