It finally happened. I canceled my home phone line.
The customer service representative gamely tried to upsell me on a bundled internet service. The gall! But the fact is, I had stopped making or receiving calls on my home line. In terms of usage I had switched over to my mobile long ago. A lot of my friends have done the same already.
Fare thee well, ebony northern telecom rotary! Godspeed, 416 204 9357! May you go to someone who cherishes your dial-tone.
Now I have to decide what to do with the savings. Skateboard apparatus? Subscription to the Economist? Upgrade to an iPhone? Suggestions welcome...
