AT&T:  Your Landline Isn’t Going Away Yet 

(Chicago, IL)  —  There’s still a lot that has to happen before AT&T can phase-out your landline.  Illinois lawmakers last week approved a 911/telecom law that, among other things, allows AT&T to free itself from a decades-old mandate that requires it to service “old phone technology.”   But despite the law, you’ll get to keep your landline until the FCC agrees to end the mandate.  No one is guessing when that will happen.
