2 increasing common problems with landlines
1. Receiving calls in a rural area
More and more individuals in rural areas are complaining that they fail to receive many calls with their landline.
2. Poor call quality to rural areas
There might be 'dead air' for up to 10 secs before you ringing occurs, or the voice quality might be almost unintelligible once connected.Both are of these are the result of long-distance providers paying higher than avg rates to place calls in rural areas. To combat these issues, the FCC now requires data recording of all rural calls.
