It is outdated. It needs to be replaced with fiber optic cables which carry both data & phone conversations at high band width.

We already paid them for exactly that. Multiple times...

I thought we paid the cable companies that money.

American Phone Companies Are Literally Letting Their Networks Fall Apart - Motherboard

'Once as important as the American railroad and electrical grid, American phone companies aren’t quite what they used to be. '

'With neither competition nor government accountability to force its hand, most American phone companies now operate in an accountability vacuum. '

'Cable operators certainly appreciate phone companies’ apathy. '

'But with no local competition and local and federal oversight eroded by lobbying—many of these companies have simply stopped caring. '

'With the use of copper-based landlines having plummeted the last few years, many of the nation’s phone companies have understandably attempted to shift their business models toward new, more profitable sectors like video advertising. '

This has been an automated message.

All Internet and Phone networks should be Volkified.

Yes. Everyone knows, but it's okay. AT&T Wireless released a new logo for LTE.

The landlines are literally useless for most places, they provide no value.

Sure they do. (((Google))) has to rent the poles to run their fiber in some locations

Most of the utility poles near me are actually the power company.
