More Than Half Of US Homes Only Have Wireless Phone Service

The "plain old telephone service" (or POTS, as it is also known) is a thing of the past for over half of us in the USA. Home that only use a traditional landline for their telephone calls account for less than 7% these days.

Most of us, particularly younger people, use cellular service or a combination, with just over 50% now only using cell phones. The data comes from a survey by the CDC - yes, the Centers for Disease Control - and was a survey of almost 20,000 US households.
