Who's doing the cheapest (POTS) phone lines?

No broadband attached.

I see Telecom do $40+GST for residential (with free local calling) or $51.95+GST for business.

Any other providers beating this?

Not Pots but is a home line with a land line number that works over the mobile network

Specifically after POTS so I can run Clothed VDSL over it.

Why not just Naked VDSL2?

Have had clients wanting phone service.

Naked VDSL + VoIP (for the plans we have) is more expensive than Clothed VDSL + POTS Phone Service.

Reading this made me wonder how we kill off this PSTN stuff?

I've just spent the week following the IPv6 debate and realised that I've got an ever growing number of technologies to support.

VoIP means you don't need to put filters or splitter in around the place.

Are you setting your customers up for when UFB hits town or just costing them more by being penny wise and pound poor?

These are questions I'm directing at myself right now.

I confess that 12 months ago I was running around looking at VoIP solutions to keep our fax going. 

Eventually I just accepted that I wasn't getting any help because what I really need to do was retune my attitude and accept that fax has gone the way of the telex.

How do we just kill off these old technologies so we're not supporting them for ever?

The problem is UFB is still years away for a good chunk of the population, meaning copper is here to stay (for now).

I'd love to provision VoIP for these particular customers (and push it wherever possible) but for the penny-counting user who only wants his free local calling, they can't justify spending an extra $120 / year to go Naked VDSL+VoIP.
