Re: "there are all of these special rules that apply."
Yeah it is not worth the hassle to be a landline.
I guess the issue is when you position yourself as a landline instead of voip (even though its all the same thing) you become on the radar of politicians who fight for seniors.
Its not worth fighting politicians over some grandma somewhere not being able to make a phone call.
I would also say they know the home phone is dead and its a break even effort not a profitable one. Even ATT has already started to offer only cell to landline hook up in many areas.
Also, they have google voice which you can use for phone calls if you want for free.
