Why are POTS lines going away?

The short answer is that copper telephone lines are becoming too expensive to maintain. Telecommunication companies are migrating to newer technologies, like VoIP solutions and fiber-optic cables. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recognized this in an August 2019 FCC order that removed obligations for certain local telephone companies to offer legacy services at regulated rates.
