Like many Americans, T-Mobile USA is giving up on landline. Today the operator said it will stop selling its @Home Internet phone service after a two-year attempt to crack the wireline market.
The Deutsche Telekom-owned company said it will stop new sales of the service “soon” in a story reported by the Associated Press. T-Mobile USA currently offers the service over either a wireless adapter or wireless router. The service costs between $10 and $15 per month after the cost of the router, which places calls over a home Internet connection.
T-Mobile says current subscribers will continue to be supported, according to the Associated Press. Verizon Wireless canceled a similar service, the Hub, in October. The Verizon Wireless Hub was on the market for less than a year.
The landline market has been steadily shrinking as customers defect from their home phone service in favor of cell phones.
