Just saw an interesting short news item in my local papers — Landline telephone companies in Ohio (they still exist?) say they need to get competitive with wireless providers. They want to do that by a) raising prices and b) reducing service.

Silly me, I would think that getting competitive would be reducing prices and improving service — or charging more for more services that people want. Guess when you’re not used to competition you don’t know how to react.

Me? My business phone is my mobile phone and my home phone is part of the cable package through Warner Cable (TV, phone, data). Not even sure who my local landline monopoly company is.
