I recently asked the question, “Why are you still paying for a land line?” I’ve had several great responses justifying why you still use a land line. Here they are:
It is required for DSL. By having the bare minimum phone service, I have DSL + phone for less than then cost of a cable modem service. Once I can get naked DSL, it will be gone.
This a good point. Although, I think that Bellsouth no longer requires you to have a land line to have DSL, but they’ll never advertise it, because they don’t want you canceling the land line. Whoever your provider is, you should call them up and see if you still need the land line to keep DSL.
