Will Recession Kill Landlines

Every year there are more and more people who only use mobile phones.  A few months ago, you started seeing Sprint advertisements talking about how much you could save on their plan that gives you unlimited calls for $99 / mo.  Now, this morning on CNN’s new money segment, the recommendation was to ditch your landline.  They suggested that you could save $400+ per year doing this and who wouldn’t want that in today’s economy.

I think this is a great example of how the recession could fundamentally change our world by accelerating certain trends.

  1. You present an interesting post on the cost of landlines that could even impact a medical practice’s bottom line. As an alternative to the landline, there are other reliable tools in addition to cell phones. For personal or business use, “voice-over-IP” (e.g. the internet) has not only phone services, but also the additional functionality to handle fax at a fraction of the cost.

    I agree that the current economic situation (recession) may indeed motivate people and businesses to look into other, low cost alternatives.
