Breaking Free from Contracts: The Benefits of No-Contract Service

May 17, 2023 | General

As the world’s largest wireless provider, AT&T has been offering no-contract mobile service for a few years.

Why did they decide to stray from the traditional monthly service contract and make this  change?

The answer is simple: growing demand for options:  flexible and affordable monthly plans.

Consumers are increasingly looking for options that give them the freedom to choose who they do business with–and low-cost carriers like T-Mobile have been gaining popularity in recent years as a result. This trend has prompted many other carriers to offer their own no-contract plans in order to compete with these companies’ offerings.

It is no different for a home security system and monthly monitoring.  EMC Security has offered no-contract service to customers a lot longer than AT&T, since our inception in 1998. 

Here’s why AT&T made the chance and EMC Security continues its no-contract service:

  • Freedom to choose the service provider that best meets their needs and budget.
  • No penalty for breaking the contract. You’re not locked into a two-five-year deal, so you can switch to another provider at any time without paying an early termination fee.
  • Avoid expensive termination fees. If you do decide to leave,  you won’t be charged any fees or penalties.
Cost Savings

One of the biggest benefits of no-contract services is that you can save money by not having to commit to a long-term contract. With traditional plans, the cost of the equipment is bundled with the monthly service cost – into perpetuity.  Once you pay for the system, the monthly cost doesn’t reduce.  With a no-contract service agreement, you purchase the equipment separate from the monthly service, so you own it.

Better Service

EMC Security believes that high-quality service at a competitive price will benefit both consumers and EMC Security.  Our staff are trained to show consumers a comparison – we are transparent about the costs – ours and the competition.  We prove we save the consumer money by using our service.    EMC Security has proven (and our online reviews back us up) that giving the customer the freedom of a no-contract agreement also gives them better service.  The fact is, if the consumer is locked into a contract, would the company work to raise the level of customer service?

 No Hidden Fees

When you sign up for a no-contract service, the price you see is the price you pay. There are no hidden fees or surprises. This makes it easier to budget your expenses and better plan for the future.


AT&T’s move to follow EMC Security into the no-contract market shows that this trend is here to stay and that other companies with monthly subscription service will likely follow suit.  Check out what EMC Security has to offer here >>
