The greatest majority of people who have landlines these days are the elderly who are on fixed incomes. I have a landline with Frontier and pay $15.65 per month. The cost for the phone service is $7. The other $8.65 are taxes and fees. I'm getting rid of my landline for a tracfone which costs as little as $10 a month and no landline-type fees. Good job there sticking it to the elderly once again.

if you up the fee more people will drop there land lines and no more revenue will actually be relized. Furthermore it will be the poorer residents of the county who dont have cell phones that will be taxed more once again taking more away from the less fortunate of the area
