Over the last decade, consumers have changed the way they use telecommunication services. Ten years ago there were more than 192 million landline phones and now that number is down to 122 million. At the same time, the number of wireless phones has grown from fewer than 110 million to nearly 303 million today. High speed internet lines have increased dramatically from fewer than 7 million in 2000 to over 130 million ten years later. The result of the increase in telecommunications use is that consumers have viable alternatives to the traditional, landline phone and many are choosing more than one option.
