While wireline service continues to account for the majority of residential phone use, it is being eroded by wireless voice services. According to In-Stat, of those respondents that use wireless, 37% indicated that the use of their cell phone had decreased their local phone usage, and 44% indicated it had decreased their long distance usage. The decreasing use of wireline for voice calls is the key concern of most traditional telecom providers. Less than 20% of current wireless users plan to cut the cord in the next 12 months.
