Re: Apartment buildings: Why don't they convert to VOIP?
You're so right about the competition with cell phones. Most of the calls that come into me from people I don't know from internet ads are from cells. That is just astounding since the quality is often terrible, they're distracted and can't focus on the call as they're out doing stuff, the phone being always accessible makes them tend to call first, think later...LOL. But they still use that instrument and one can never forget that. Definitely it would be harder sell to younger people who don't even use a landline. But they sure pay dearly for that convenience, especially if they want the "whole package" of voice, text and web access. Still most of them do not have long distance packages, they often don't have unlimited calling during the day and texting on a tiny kaypad is vastly inferior to texting on a computer keyboard. So there is a market but its smaller than it could be.
