    and is lobbying hard to get rid of such oversight

    AT&T and Verizon also want to end state authority to resolve customer complaints, saying the market will punish bad behavior.
    So do not worry at all. I am sure if they get their way things will be much better. Free market you know.

    Link is informative about these issues and what people are likeliest to be hurt by end of universal landline service

    When cancelling my att phone today the guy I talked to was well aware of these issues and used the same arguments as noted in article about why they were entirely reasonable.

    I got rid of line because I finally got the obi110 I'd been reading about and contemplating for months, set it up, tried it out. Easy and works great. 40 something spent once and free calls forever instead of 40 something every month to att. Computer doesn't need to be on... and 100s of good reviews made it seemed worth a try.
    But the timing was good because I'd been reading about the issue so my reason for cancel wasn't just "I'm cheap" but "I am cheap and your politics suck" (paraphrasing)
    Just sounds classier
