Did you know copper phone (POTS) line prices are getting ready to skyrocket?

Mike Hancock Uncategorized

It’s true. Most providers are sunsetting an estimated 36 million plain, old copper phone lines (POTS) on August 2, 2022.

Your critical systems may be at risk of a connectivity loss when POTS are sunset:

  • Access Controls
  • Alarms
  • Elevators
  • Emergency 911 (E911)
  • Fax and Office Lines 
  • Point-of-Sale 
  • Pumps 
  • As well as any other services dependent on POTS lines 

Don’t panic, you can replace your POTS lines with modern solutions from Inspire Communications.

The price of copper phone lines may increase 30-50% later this year. Be proactive, understand your options, and make the move to a modern, all-in-one managed service solution that provides: 

  • Immediate costs savings and the comfort of knowing that your critical service lines are remaining connected 
  • Wireless LTE broadband backup with battery backup in case of power or internet outages 
  • Federal, state and local fire and building codes, standards and certifications

Frequently Asked Questions

When will my POTS lines stop working?

There is no definitive date on when or if providers will terminate the service. Many have stated they will stop selling and servicing POTS lines on August 2, 2022.

When will my copper line prices increase?

POTS pricing has already been on the rise and we anticipate substantial increases after August 2, 2022.

What happens if I wait until August or later?

Currently, there are new managed service solutions available. As demand increases, that could potentially limit access and availability of certain solutions.    

How long does the switch to LTE take?

Currently, solutions are available despite supply chain uncertainty. Once your order is placed, we aim to have you on a managed service within 45 -60 days.
