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pricing for existing POTS lines between 75% – 200% in a concentrated effort to force customer migration away from the outdated, dying POTS Line infrastructure.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.
