The FCC and carriers are saying goodbye to copper telephone wires
Phone carriers are literally hanging up on Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS) lines.
Copper telephone lines that support (POTS) lines are an aging infrastructure that are becoming more and more expensive to maintain. The FCC and most major telephone providers, such as AT&T, Windstream, Verizon, Lumens & smaller resellers, are making an aggressive POTS replacement push to fiber and wireless connections, with a nationwide roll-out starting in 2022.
The push to fiber and wireless connections comes as no surprise. POTS lines are getting less reliable and more expensive, all while offering fewer options than before the digital push.
How Does This Affect You?
Many “analog-era” applications – fire and security alarms, elevator systems, phone and voice adapters, point of sale systems, gate access, fax machines, and ATMs – weren’t built with the digital age in mind. These applications require a reliable connection and run inherently better on analog lines. Our POTS replacement service is a simple solution that allows these applications to run seamlessly with a wireless, digital connection.
