Your phone line is about to die — and com­pan­ies like AT&T, along with the Fed­er­al Com­mu­nic­a­tions Com­mis­sion, are lead­ing it to its shal­low grave.

Na­tion­al Journ­al‘s Brendan Sas­so ex­plains why the private sec­tor is ur­ging gov­ern­ment agen­cies to speed up the reg­u­lat­ory pro­cess in trans­ition­ing from old land lines and out­dated switches to faster In­ter­net Pro­tocol net­works.

Foot­age from: AT&T, Von­age, Skype, LifeAl­ert, and the Prelinger Archive.
