No one will be able to hear you …

Dr. Weeks Comment:  Once the telephone land lines are surrendered as per the efforts of the FCC, we become too vulnerable to communications interferences. Cell phone reception is not only non-reliable (“Can you hear me now?” )  but also, the entire web internet (voice over internet) and cell phone tower processes can be taken down by people in power in an instant.   I use land lines.  Think before you to the convenient thing. 

The FCC will be discontinuing the Local Exchange, DSL and Voice service through landlines to the following places. Last day to comment is December 27th. Please pass along to people you know in these areas:
