POTS Swap, replacing traditional “Plain Old Telephone Service”

In an era where technology is rapidly evolving, traditional Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS) lines are becoming obsolete, costly, and less reliable. We present a forward-thinking solution to this challenge, offering The POTS Swap Solution. Designed to seamlessly transition your communication systems into the modern age, our solution ensures reliability, cost-effectiveness, and enhanced functionality.

Challenges with POTS:

  • Declining Availability: The number of POTS lines in the U.S. has dramatically decreased from 122 million in 2010 to 41 million in 2019. Predictions suggest that by 2026, there might be none left.
  • Increasing Costs: With the removal of price caps on POTS lines by the FCC and state regulators, businesses are witnessing a surge in monthly rates, even as other telecom services become more affordable.
  • Deteriorating Service Quality: As carriers shift their focus away from POTS, the quality of service is declining, leading to more frequent and prolonged outages.
