Thank you very much to Californians for Safe Technology for the alert below. There is more information at SaveLandlines.org also.

CALL TO ACTION- PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY AND TAKE ACTION TODAY

AT&T has applied with the California PUC to discontinue its Carrier of Last Resort (COLR) obligations for copper wire landlines. This decision would have devastating effects on consumer choice and public safety by phasing out essential landline services for all Californians – and would be particularly devastating to the elderly and those in rural communities.

I’m hoping that you can help stop this by doing one or more simple actions.

Your help in this will protect essential copper landlines from being decommissioned across California.What can you do? Attend, Call/Email or Submit on or before March 19, 2024

Talking Points:

Why do we need copper landlines?

  1. The elderly population is more dependent on copper landlines and more likely to experience technology aversion and often do not have the ability or desire to use other technology.
  2. Traditional copper landline service is tied to an address making it the most dependable emergency communications tool currently available and is vital to helping emergency services identify your exact location.
  3. Copper landlines are more reliable than wireless or VoIP services in urban, suburban, and rural areas because the copper-based systems can still work even when the power is out.
  4. Many rural areas depend on their copper landlines and lack other options.
  5. Some people and businesses prefer the quality of wired connections.
  6. Some people have debilitating symptoms when in close proximity to wireless connections.
