pointless and irrelevant

I'm in Frontier's Orange County service area; I left their wireline service years ago, It simply can't compete with VoIP on price and their DSL service is a sad joke compared to TWC.

NO ONE with half a brain is going to bundle Frontier POTS with an ATTWS contract plan.

If I had $1

for every time the future predictors around here got one right I would be a very poor man!

POTS will probably never compete on price, only because they have reliability behind it. Funny thing some people around here seem to forget all to quickly is when the power outage around here hit for well over 5+ consecutive days in the heat, many didn't have cell phone service working well and tons of dropped calls from all the big cell players. I still amazed many of neighbors when I was talking on my landline outside.

They were all curious on how I was able to make a phone call, they thought I had a government line or I was special or something. They even called the cops which came over and I told them this : "No, no secret, a plain old telephone service line I pay $30 a month for it. "

I deflated a lot of sails and sank quite a few of their "pride" ships like they were going to get one on me! Surprise! no, you can own one too! I still laugh to this day about it!

"Sorry for disturbing you sir, you have a good afternoon."

Eh? Why would anyone call the police because they saw their neighbor on the phone? And why would the police respond to such a call?

I asked the officer the same question... he shook his head and just left.

All I can think of is "Well some people...."

Naa, kooky might mean they are weird. Hell people think I am weird still having a POTS line in the house!

I would agree with "nosy" and "entitled"

Great article, more "too little too late" as TWC has been wiping the floor with them for years. Unless you're in REC territory, wireless is the future and Frontier, Fairpoint, et al are inheriting more of a a twitching corpse.
