The Florida phone survey says that 1.2M households do not have a landline.
The Florida Public Service Commission released its 2008 Telecommunications Report to government officials over the weekend compiling data from 370 companies certified by the PSC to operate in Florida. While Wireless, Voice-over-IP and broadband services have some of the most significant shares in the state’s communications market, landline service fell 15 percent during an 18-month period between June 1, 2006, and Dec. 31, 2007....The PSC estimates that 1.2 million households in Florida are wireless only as 15 million cell phones were in use in the state. The PSC does not regulate wireless services but is required by state law to provide “the status of competition in the telecommunications industry.” [TBBJ]
