Plain Old Telephone Service Lines Replacement
If your business’ fax machines, fire and safety alarms, elevators, or other common analog applications still work using plain old telephone service lines, we urge you to consider our digital POTS lines replacement solution.
Plain Old Telephone Service, or POTS, is a dying infrastructure that will soon need replacement. The FCC and major phone providers are now calling for the discontinuation of all domestic POTS lines in an effort to push customers toward fiber or wireless connections. Plain old telephone service will become increasingly expensive to maintain in the future with fewer service options available.
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pricing for existing POTS lines between 75% – 200% in a concentrated effort to force customer migration away from the outdated, dying POTS Line infrastructure.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.
