I've come to wonder why the cable/DSL providers continually bundle their offers with a landline phone. So many of us have untethered our lives from landlines that this obsession with adding this to their plans seems out of date. Why is this other than to make themselves more money? "You'd get a better deal with the landline bundle," they tell us. I don't want the phone, please create a plan without one.
It's not going to be long before many subscribers won't even want the cable/satellite/DSL and will be going for things like Netflix/Roku/Hulu etc and watching what they want when they want. The only drawback is lack of current news and sports.
