Sorry for not being clear -- that's the same cost as the copper. AT&T
is expensive for a landline. So my option #1 is to keep paying the
same cost as now. But the only reason I was willing to fork over
$100/month was because it was copper and stayed up in power outages.
Now that reason is gone, so it makes sense to switch to a lower-cost
