Over my dead body (or a fish)
When Frontier brought in DSL they lobbied hard -- even tried to "bribe" me with a $50 VISA card -- to accept POTS. I dug in my heels and insisted on dry loop, telling them "I'd rather find a dead fish in my mailbox than have a landline phone again." We dumped that one-way street for telemarketers and obnoxious taxes over seven years ago and couldn't be happier. I *HATE* the phone worse than Gollum hates nasty Hobbitses.
I'll take the money I'm not paying to the bloated state and federal government in phone taxes and see if I can "coax" the tech guys from Frontier to hook me up to that lovely chunk of fiber that runs under the road...
Phone lines? Seriously??
