Our analog copper landline telephones provide reliable, high quality, affordable voice service.
Now big telecom companies like AT&T are trying to pull the plug on landlines and force people to use less-regulated cell phones or Voice-Over-Internet-Protocol (VOIP) without any coherent plan to keep people safely and reliably connected.
AB 2395 – a bill just defeated in California’s state legislature- would have allowed AT&T to dismantle the state’s landline network, costing the public our safety, health, jobs, and cutting off critical emergency communications access to millions of people. Similar legislation has passed, or is proposed in many other states. The public must remain vigilant, and defend our landlines.
If you want to keep your choice to have a reliable landline in your home or business, you need to take action now: contact your legislators, spread the word to friends and family, and help us defeat this threat to our essential landline network.
