Keep Your Landline Telephones

Telecom companies are planning to pull the plug on essential landlines, aiming to phase them out by 2025

British Telecom companies are planning to pull the plug on essential landlines in favour of less-regulated, less reliable,less secure and more expensive wireless phones or Voice-Over-Internet-Protocol (VOIP). They lack a sensible plan to keep people safely and reliably connected. British Telecom (BT), for example, have already been moving customers from landlines to internet connections, although they have temporarily postponed the roll-out after escalating complaints from concerned customers.

BT to end landline phones sparking fears for millions of vulnerable and elderly people: “Around six percent of households – roughly 1.5million homes – do not have access to the Internet, according to watchdog Ofcom.”

Dismantling landlines will cost us safety, health as well as jobs and cut off critical emergency communications access to millions of people. We must defend our landlines from unscrupulous telecom companies and governments. If you want to keep your choice to have a reliable landline in your home or business, you need to act now. Please sign this Call to Action, contact your MP and spread the word across the UK.

Re-investing in our copper telephone landline network will be beneficial for Public Health, Security and Ecology. Copper landlines serve as a necessary, reliable and safe alternative to power-grid dependent, energy-hungry communications systems like VOIP. Landlines are also far more benign than mobile phone services as wireless connections are less secure and harmful to our health.

There is no longer any question whether wireless Radio Frequency (RF) radiation – used in mobile phone communications and wireless devices – is harmful to humans and wildlife. Commonly identified health consequences of short and longer term exposures include insomnia, headaches and fatigue, as well as other serious and life changing ailments. Tens of thousands of scientific papers (linked herein) have cited connections to the role of EMFs in a multitude of adverse health effects, including depression, infertility, cancer, damage to DNA/gene expression, oxidative stress, pregnancy complications, Melatonin production, neurological disorders, immune dysfunction, Alzheimers/dementia, leukaemia, and many, many more.

Over 1,600 scientific papers can be found here:

Another 4000+ studies can be found here:

And another 23,840 studies are linked here:

Finally, here is a recent compilation of the vast number of known biological effects from wireless radiation:

“Worst affected will be people with electro-hypersensitivity and other vulnerable groups, such as the elderly, who aren’t tech-savvy, and for whom landlines are a lifeline. But we’ll all be affected, especially those not wanting a mobile phone – for health, environmental, security and privacy reasons – and who feel they’re being forced into a ‘Brave New Normal’.

The march into an unaccountable inhuman(e) technocracy is not inevitable. Once enough people realise what’s happening, they’ll ditch their ‘smart’ mirrors and demand copper, analogue, wired connections.”
