Cell phones are finally beating out land lines

According to a recent article in the New York Times, 2007 will be the first year that consumers will spend more on cell phone subscriptions than on land lines. I can certainly see why. In my house we haven’t had a landline in roughly 3 years. Instead, we’ve relied on VoIP (Sunrocket, Packet8, and now ViaTalk) for our dial tone.

However it is suprising for me to see that this is true for the mass market.

What about you guys? Have you dropped your land lines yet?

I have many friends who are in their late 20’s and early 30’s and only have a cell phone. If my wife didn’t feel the need for a normal phone, I would just have a cell phone as well.
