Eighteen months ago, the Security Alarm industry was reluctant to offer contracts to subscribers who had any telephone connection other than standard, Public Switched Telephone Network connections. Industry acceptance of Digital Cable Telephone service (such as Comcast Digital Voice, Cox Cable, Time Warner, etc.) is now much more common, and in fact many of our current dealers offer contracts to subscribers with these MFVNs, or Managed Facilities Voice Networks.
