You mentioned telephone. Ten years ago our one line landline phone bill was $24 plus the taxes, making it in the 30's. Now it's $54 for exactly the same service, less call waiting and call forwarding, which I dropped to save $2.99.

Landlines are a dying technology, so it is less of a factor. Only a few of the people I know actually still have a landline.

How can a person get dial up without a landline?

those of us in semi remote places w/questionable cell service rely heavily on landlines, and cash.
