The Truth About Your Landline Phone
Jim Murray, President ofAT&T Michigan, shared information on the future of landlines.
He posted, "Recent stories in news outlets in Michigan may have scared some people about Senate Bill 636, which would update Michigan regulations to make it easier for phone companies like AT&T to invest in new, more efficient communications services. Unfortunately, the stories have misled – even frightened – some people about what the bill would do."
He continued, "This legislation will not remove landlines from peoples’ homes or businesses. For generations, the wires coming into your house and mine carried one thing: our voice."
