Cell Phones now outnumber Land Lines in the U.S.

File this under "The Future is Now"-
For the first time in the United States there are more cell phones in use than traditional land lines. A new report from the FCC confirms cell numbers overtook land lines late last year. There are currently 181.1 million cellphone lines versus 177.9 million landlines in use here in States. To put pace of change in perspective, in 1999, there were 189.5 million local phone lines (land lines), compared with 79.7 million cell phone users.
While this is all good information, we're left wondering about the millions of new Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) customers around the country? Where do they fit in this tangle of wires and non-wires?
