In response to a Notice of Inquiry released by the FCC to explore how to transition to a purely IP-based communications network, AT&T has declared that it’s time to cut the cord. AT&T told the FCC that the death of landlines is a matter of when, not if, and asked that a firm deadline be set for pulling the plug.
AT&T said in its response to the FCC that “with each passing day, more and more communications services migrate to broadband and IP-based services, leaving the public switched telephone network (“PSTN”) and plain-old telephone service (“POTS”) as relics of a by-gone era.”
My home phone has been on VoIP for over five years, our company’s phones have been on VoIP for over two years, my mobile phone gets used A LOT between appointments, but I haven’t paid AT&T a dime for phone service in years.
If you still have a landline, let me know why!!!
