I believe it - AMERICANS talk less and text more now. We have text awareness program out there telling teens to don't text and drive... I recently had to get a home phone for 8.00 through AT&T so that I could upgrade my service from crappy CLEARWIRE 2MB to ELITE 3MB with AT&T. I know these speeds are not comcastic, but it is actually a huge difference, and the cost increase was neglible. Now, as soon as I can get DIRECT DSL, then the phone is gone, again.

That number is low like that because of how many god damn old people there are in the world, once we decide hey, it's time to put all these worthless geezers in the oven, there will be no more commercial landline phones. Plus the roads will be safer, lines at the bank and burger king will go faster, it will be a truly revolutionary time.
