The end of POTS?

BellMTS still has plenty of POTS here in Manitoba, Canada. They're on a big push to get FTTH out to a lot more areas, but I'm still seeing news articles of customers being without working landlines for weeks.

Before I quit contracting for them,  I was in a couple remote COs whose ancient GTD-5 EAX switches appeared to be recently upgraded to something modern. I was surprised since the new stuff probably won't be needed for very long, relatively speaking, especially compared to how the old stuff. I wonder if they've started upgrading their "newer" Nortel DMS stuff yet 😏
