Re: $1500?

I could care less how much it costs if they have been getting subsidized for services that they may or may not have ever provided.

They can suck it up and just keep the phone there.

Why? If no one is using it. Payback? Getting even with the man? Yes, that would be really productive.

Why do you care about a pay phone that's in a town you will probably never visit?

No. They are being paid for it. Either way they are going to get the subsidy, they should provide the phone.

Are you trying to imply that I'm selfish enough to not care about the citizens of Podunk, Nebraska?

What is the company getting paid? What's the subsidy for this one unused, unneeded phone?

K & M isn't alone since Nebraska's Public Service Commission requires each town in the State to have at least one 24-hour public pay phone. While the companies probably don't like eating these costs, the source article omits the fact that most of these telcos (small and large alike) have been subsidized billions for years for services they may -- or may have not -- ever actually provided
it was conveniently left out of the article.

You're right, Karl Bode See Profile conveniently didn't quantify his opinion.

I'll be honest. I don't care about what's going on in Podunk, Nebraska.

Some do. Others try to point out some of the facts surrounding various opinions thrown around here.

Re: $1500?

Excuse me, I am not doubting that it costs $1500, or that it made $3.25 in a year. I am simply making commentary on that. So don't go around blaming me for saying things that I clearly and obviously didn't say.
