Cellphone Numbers Overtake Land Lines

Cellphone Numbers Overtake Land Lines

I'm no longer trendy:

The number of mobile-phone users in the U.S. surpassed the number of conventional land-based phone lines in the second half of 2004, the government said Friday.

By the end of the year, there were 181.1 million cellphone subscribers, compared with 177.9 million access lines into U.S. homes and businesses, the Federal Communications Commission said in a biannual report.

About 6% of phone customers have cut the cord to go entirely wireless.

Which I did nearly four years ago. Wonder how many of the land-line-lubbers only keep the wire for DSL purposes?
