Cost of POTS is Ballooning
Major telecommunications companies today are rapidly retiring their analog POTS lines as aging copper infrastructure is increasingly more expensive to maintain. Providers like AT&T and Verizon are starting to eliminate support for landlines. Promising a full phase-out, Verizon filed a request with the FCC to retire copper wires, ridding the maintenance and support on POTS lines. These network providers are also raising prices significantly to drive customers to migrate to new digital technologies.

Considerations for POTS Replacement
POTS lines serve many different applications and are connected to a variety of devices, including voice communications, security alarms, fax machines, gate systems, emergency call boxes, fire panels. While many application and devices can be replaced by broadband data line, not all analog-era communications are built for digital transmission. For example, most commercial fire alarm control panels are connected to the central monitoring station using two POTS lines. The lines transmit unique signals to communicate with the monitoring centers. Some alarm dialers will not work correctly with VoIP technology, unable to send correct signals to the monitoring stations. Another example is a fax line. Fax was designed for analog networks and does not transmit optimally over a digital network, needing an analog adapter that supports T.38 protocol.
