Telephone Wires

Telephone Wires

From Saul Hansell at the NY Times' Bits:
The biggest expense of offering local phone service is maintaining the wires to each customer’s house (wires which in many cases also carry Internet traffic). In any case, virtually all of the costs of offering phone service are fixed and have nothing to do with how many calls customers make, how long they talk or what distance the calls travel.
No wonder I have a difficult time figuring out telephone bills.
