Going out of business
The city finally posted the presentation for their first quarter financial report.
One of the slides tells us a lot about how competition affects the market.
Things are not looking good for their land line business.
We deserve better

Yep, it’s AT&Ts own fault.
They would not transfer my business phone line to a cell phone line so they got dropped by me. Figured out a way to not use the fax land-line, so that went also.
So, after being pricks about it, people found a way to not pay their rediculously priced commercial land lines.
Changed my commercial phone number to a cell number which can be used at most any carriers.
The Fax line was also a “commercial line” which was only used 10 times a month. So, that had to go.
There is no phone book worth while now.
A half-inch thick little book, most numbers are obsolete by the time it comes out.
AT&T got greedy.
Decline in landlines is not an accurate picture of ATT’s financial health. They have a strong cell phone business and broadband business. ATT will still be in be in business when the city declares bankruptcy. If the city has not anticipated and planned adequately for the universal decline in landlines, they’re just plain dumb. And they continue to hand out tax breaks to other businesses, tax revenue that is needed to offset such losses and to help pay for services needed to support the city’s expansion and increased population..
