As appeared on NextGov.com by MetTel’s Don Parente:
The end of copper telephone lines could spell trouble for the delivery of emergency services.
Imagine if you were stuck in an elevator and couldn’t call out for help. Or imagine another emergency, a fire perhaps, in which your communications link to emergency services was broken.
On a more routine level, you may be noticing escalating telephone line costs month after month. Then you are alerted that they will be sunset soon. If no action is taken, your main office lines just stop working.
