They recently released a new report which boils down to the news that 2 out of 5 homes in the US have ditched the landline and are cellphone only.
That’s twice what it was 5 years ago, but in spite of that, the trend seems to be slowing down.
You can read more about this report from several links I will put at the end of this post.
This made me wonder about those of us here in the blogosphere … worldwide, not just in the USA.
So let’s weigh in!
Here at my house, we have both. However, we don’t use the landline anymore. It’s there, and it collects all the telemarketer calls (and a lot of dust), but we don’t use it as our phone. I would dump it, but it comes “bundled” with cable TV service and internet, and basically costs nothing, so…… we keep it and let the answering machine pick up any stray calls that come through there.
My children, however, are all adults with homes of their own, and there are no landlines for them. Cell phones only in those households.
How about you? Are you a cell phone-only house?
Or do you have a cell-phone(s) AND a landline?
