Home phone service

I need to keep a land line because my parents are elderly and cannot remember my cell phone number.

I currently have AT&T for local calls and really slow internet for $19/mo.

Today, I will be getting high speed internet through my cable company as part of my condo assessment. I have the option of getting phone from my cable company as well for the same $19/mo. It will cover US long distance and local calls.

I should mention that my RCN cable has been very reliable with only one outage in the past 3 years.
I've not had any problems with my land line phone service from AT&T

What are the advantages/disadvatages to keeping or changing my phone service?
Which is better in an emergency situation?


Which would you choose? Why?

edited to add: Are they taxed differently? Because with taxes the $19 AT&T comes to almost $40.
