Plain Old Telephone Service “POTS” is a 100-year-old infrastructure of copper wires. While digital transformation has been ongoing for decades, three years ago, the FCC abandoned requirements, allowing local exchange carriers to increase rates and phase out support for analog telephone lines.
Now, customers are finding themselves with letters from local exchange carriers cancelling service or they get hit with a very high bill. Carriers no longer invest in copper facilities and customers receive no benefit in using them other than a costly expense and degraded analog service.
Businesses have options. Consolidate lines, lock in current rates with us and migrate to a digital service when the time is right, or start saving money now and transform old telephone service used for specialty lines like fire/alarm systems, sprinklers, elevators, fax, POS systems, vending machines, modems, etc.
