I'm guessing it will take about 20 years for Bell to get everyone off of POTS without some serious incentives.
My basic POTS phone now costs me about $56 plus tax.

Do they charge the same for the VOIP phone?

My VoIP phone from Rogers costs $24.99 + tax. That includes caller ID and free long distance in Canada.

I haven't lost my mind. It's around here...somewhere...

Yes, which is another good reason to dump them for phone. Of course, then I lose the bundling discounts.

Cable and phone companies want to cut costs by abandoning POTS but still want to charge POTS prices. I've seen a few offers where they cut their fibre or cable home phone plans to a reasonable price for a few months but prices should be that low on an ongoing basis. Bundling helps but better prices on every service are usually available from third party providers. By ripping people off on home phone, they are losing customers for every service.
