When did your home landline last ring?
On the rare occasion you get a call on your landline, the chances are it’s going to be a scam caller.
Mobile calls have come down in price over the last decade and even old people have learned to use smart phones.
As a result, 40% of us have stopped using a landline phone altogether, according to new survey from price comparison site Uswitch.
And while 95% of over-65-year-olds still have a traditional phone, nearly half of under-25s don’t even have a landline installed.
Unless you make a lot of local calls, you don’t need a landline anymore. Most people keep it simply because they’ve always had it. But you are paying extra for that service. All the cell phone companies will let you call customers using the same cell provider for no charge against your minutes.
