Much of the talk of the death of the PSTN is really about TDM networks, regulatory regimes and business models.
Maybe, I see mention at AT&T of Project Velocity IP (VIP). Which seems to be a plan to migrate at least 75% of wired customers to VOIP in the next few years, the rest are to be moved to LTE.
You can read about it here - »www.att.com/Common/about_us/file···on_c.pdf
in the above on page 14 -
Extend 4G LTE build to 300M POPs by end of 2014
High speed IP broadband to 75% of wireline customer locations
Proactively light up fiber to an additional 1Mbusiness locations
Transition to wired + wireless IP
The above is AT&T's stated goal on their website as of November 7, 2012.--
