Copper Telephone Line Replacement
Copper telephone lines that support POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service) are an aging infrastructure that will soon need replacement. Starting in 2022, the FCC and major phone providers are calling for the discontinuation of all domestic POTS and Copper Telephone Lines. Their goal is to push customers toward fiber or wireless connections. Copper Telephone Lines are expected to become increasingly expensive with fewer service options over the coming years.
If your business still depends on POTS or copper telephone lines for security and fire alarm systems, elevators, fax machines, or other applications, consider copper telephone line replacement with Telplus Communications. We’ll bring your infrastructure into the digital age and save you money in the process.
The Impact of FCC POTS Lines Forbearance Order 19-72A1
The deadline to replace traditional copper analog POTS Lines has passed, but it’s not too late to make the switch!
Due to FCC POTS Lines Forbearance Order 19-72A1, telecommunications carriers, such as AT&T, Windstream, Verizon, Lumens, and smaller resellers, are no longer legally required to service POTS Lines.
The impact of FCC POTS Lines Forbearance Order 19-72A1 includes:
- An Increase in Monthly Pricing – Telecommunications carriers are increasing pricing for existing POTS lines between 75% – 200% in a concentrated effort to force customer migration away from the outdated, dying POTS Line infrastructure.
- Continuous Reduction in Provided Support – Telecommunication carriers are no longer required to service POTS Lines, making them obsolete and essentially ‘left-for-dead’ technology. Not only will you be left paying more monthly, but you’ll also be paying for the service of copper analog lines that no longer receive maintenance.
