Your Phone Bill Is Going Up Again

http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/conws/4092163.html

(PRN) Warning to Texas Consumers: Nearly $350 Million Federal Phone Bill Tax Hike for State Now Being Pushed by Phone Companies .....

....
For Texas, the change in USF to a per-connection tax would mean an increase in taxes of $103 million per year at the rate of $1 per connection or, as would be more likely, $343 million at the rate of $1.50 per connection. Texans currently pay $376.9 million annually in federal USF phone taxes. Under the industry plan, only California would get stiffed with a higher tax- increase bill of $582.4 million. For full state-by-state data, see the chart at

Kinda sucks, but a land line is still the most reliable source of audio communication. In an emergency like a hurricane or floods, a lot of the land line still works vs. cell.

Home security system needs a land line. Also - 911 service isn't as reliable with VoIP service as I would like it to be. Other than that I'd cancel the land line and go with VoIP.

Tivo needs a lan line.

^^as for 911, it is unreliable even if you connect. I was on hold for 4 minutes once when i called them!

That's the only way I'd ever consider having a land line.

I had to get a lan line to get dsl, I can't get cable internet here at the apt because they have a contract with tvmax cable. I got ATT service and don't even have my phone plugged in anymore, everyday like 10 telemarketers call and a fax machine calls in the middle of the night. I hate having a lan line home telephone.
