Landline Telephone: Do You Still Have One? [Poll]
Have you tried to find a telephone book lately? Can't find it, can you?
What's up with this world? I want to look up a number. Well, use the Internet.
That's the same sad story regarding land line for your phone. Try to find one. It looks like they're on their way out.
In a latest study, more and more people are dropping their land lines for the cell phone.
According to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention -- why they did the survey should be another question -- but anyway, 41 percent of households only used a wireless phone in the last half of 2013.
That's a big jump from the 38 percent the year before that and the 30 percent in 2010.
In other words, 93 million adults and about 35 million kids are using cell phones. That's 128 million who have dropped a landline.
Here are some interesting facts about those with and those without landlines:
- Twenty-nine percent of adults who only use cell phones had at least five drinks in one day, compared to 17 percent of those with landlines.
- Twenty-five percent of homes who rely on wireless don't have health insurance, while 15 percent of landline devotees do.
Hmm, very interesting.
What about you?
Please let me know. Do you have a landline telephone still or have you gotten rid of it?
