Best Long Range Cordless Phone

Before buying a long range cordless phone many of us would like to know what manufacturers and vendors mean by "long range." It's clearly a tough question. With one notable exception they simply don't provide numbers. Not even to give an indication.

While it's annoying we do understand the challenge. It's one thing to indicate cordless phone range in a wide open space or vacuum and another within the confines of a house or office building. Walls, large objects and different types of construction all have an impact. In short there is no possibility of getting a "number" that is valid in every situation. However, we can identify the best long range cordless phone for use in most situations.

DECT 6.0 Phones

The latest cordless phones for residential and small business use are DECT 6.0 phones. They use the 1.9 GHz frequency, which doesn't mean that they are any less powerful than 2.4 GHz or 5.8 GHz phones. In fact it's a better cordless phone frequency than the alternatives because it's dedicated to voice communication and is immune to most forms of interference.

Irrespective of brand or model a DECT 6.0 phone has a range outdoors of about 300 feet. That's subject to a clear line of sight between base and handsets. The best that can be said about the range indoors is that it will be less.

Panasonic Cordless Phones

As a rule of thumb they will double cordless phone range.
