Verizon adds FiOS Digital Voice phone line

Verizon has added a VoIP calling option to its fiber optic FiOS service on Wednesday. Called FiOS Digital Voice, it offers live voicemail screening, an online call manager and Caller ID on TV, among others. An online management tool lets users change settings and options from any computer and web browser.

Subscribers can program as many as three other numbers where they can be reached when not at home, with incoming calls forwarded to those numbers. Users can also be notified of new voicemails by e-mail, set Do Not Disturb messages and simultaneous rings. Virtual numbers lets users give out different phone numbers without having to get more lines. Unlike some other VoIP phone services, emergency services still work by dialing 911.

The Digital Voice option is available to new customers bundled with FiOS TV Prime and FiOS Internet for $90 per month. Subscribers can add a second line for $10 per month. There is no indication of what adding the service to existing accounts would cost. It's so far only available to customers in New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Florida, Texas, Virginia, Maryland, Washington, DC, Delaware, Pennsylvania and California.
