And like I said, VoLTE is coming...and I don't think it will be that difficult or expensive to just slap down a tower near you to deliver VoIP (VoLTE).
It has nothing to do with your old landline, doesn't need or use it....nothing to convert, switch, refit or anything. If you have an internet connection, you are VoIP capable. Period.

Considering that companies like Verizon, AT&T, and Comcast/XFinity have already gone this way with the at-home phone service they offer, I'd say it's pretty likely.
What is best in life? "To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women."
Even our copper is 'ancient' and the newest fiber are builds by Charter and Comcast and the like. Even our head-ends have little in the way for 'modern' services, as the area is not populated enough for the service to be cost effective. On my location, our pedestals have cable only, and the line amps and distribution plant is cable only, not supported by HFC.
Our serving telco is Frontier, and they have very poor offerings, even for internet, you have DSL, and if you have T1, it's NOT at a high enough speed/bandwidth to make sense.
People forget about location, location, location....it is about where you live, as to what services are available and offered!
Gee, even 4G is sparse here, and only in metro areas like Wausau, and one or two sites in Oneida county or Vilas, very sparse!
3G is always lit, but 4G...*laughing*...Not so much!
