Do you get what you pay for? 90.75 a month. That’s what my elderly neighbor is paying for a landline. Not a landline and Internet or landline and cable, just a single phone line that AT&T has managed to pump up to almost $100 a month. Her bill could best be described as a relic of a bygone telephony era, back when phone lines were all copper and massive arrays of trunks interconnected millions of callers across the country.
