Landline phase-out in 2020?
In Northern California, we just had ~ 2 million people without power, due to high fire risk and PG&E intentionally shutting off all power. During that time, only the true copper wire AT&T landlines worked well. Verizon cellular worked in most places, ATT cell service and those using their towers did not. Now there is a rumor going around that AT&T is going to phase out copper wire landlines in 2020. This would be a real blow to our region's safety during the new normal of power outages during high fire danger periods. What is AT&T's plan?
