I predict there will be a rush of landline-cutting after this election. We took the axe to ours seven years ago and never regretted it.
The only reason I haven’t cut my landline is that I can’t get a cell signal down here in the holler.
Most winters I go out on the lake and sit there with a lawn chair to use the cell but there hasn’t been enough ice most of this winter to do it.
every snow storm or rain storm, satellite goes out for a time....I was told by my Direct TV to go outside and wipe off the snow and ice from the satellite with a soft towel to get my signal back on and it works.
finally had a service guy tell me to spray my dish with Pam. It keeps the snow and ice from sticking and last year only had to go out once to wipe it off...bad ice storm that time....the internet service is slow with land lines but reliable...unless some one hits a pole with their car. then the phone service is down and so is the computer... I have had phone calls that when I hang up, they call right back....fixed that one by throwing the phone on the bed and going to the kitchen for a cup of coffee...they quite calling back...
Good suggestion, Kieri.
All I get on my home phone are telemarketers.
Now on to get rid of the US post office....
