One of the mobile operators in town recently introduced a new service – “Wireless fixed-line service”. What that marketing gimic exactly do is beyond me, but it gonnna be a mix of wireless and internet based telephone services. I am sure one day this kind of service will replace our usual fixed-line phone and by then, the term “telephone line” will go down the drain of history. Before then, a song from Electric Light Orchestra, 32 years ago.
Hello. How are you?
Have you been alright, through all those lonely lonely lonely lonely lonely nights
That’s what I’d say. I’d tell you everything
If you’d pick up that telephone yeah yeah yeah
