Default Landline requirement for home confinement

I live in an area where there is no landline service. I can only get home phone through my internet. From what I understand for my LO to be released to my home I need to have a landline. Will this mean she will get sent to a HWH? Does anyone have experience with this? She told me she is being considered for compassionate release because of covid. I am expecting a call from her case manager any day but I am afraid to mention that I do not have a landline in case they decide not to consider her for release because she doesn't have a "approved release plan"

I do not believe if she is released on compassionate release you have to worry about the phone line the phone line is only for the. Between their release because of good time and their end release but with compassionate release that changes. As far as the halfway house goes again for my understanding there is no halfway house if it is compassionate release.

After having served my time in prison, I was also ordered to spend time on "home confinement". As part of this confinement, I was required to wear an ankle bracelet which linked with a home base unit - it did not require a home phone line as it worked on a cellular network. I too was worried about the home phone line but was told that in our area (Indiana) the USPO uses the cellular based monitoring system.

Two different systems. His halfway house required my LO to call in every night on the land line to confirm his location, even though he was already wearing the anklet, which did not need a landline. Yes, it's redundant, but I suppose it would be harder to spoof two systems than one.

My husband was released in July and we’re not required to have a landline while he’s on a leg monitor. Everything is gps now. Not sure of the rules if someone’s off the leg monitor
