As a term, "fixed-line" seems as quaint as rotary dial; but maybe
that's merely press-friendly lingo.

In any event, will there be much money in "fixed-line" in years to
come? If the NBN continues to roll, won't must in-country calls
devolve to P2P SIP?

I suspect "fixed-line" is a gateway drug for other services and market
