Are Landline Phones Becoming an Endangered Species?



The declining relevance of landline phones might not be too surprising for the connected generation, but only 10 years ago, 92.7% of U.S. households had a working landline phone.

Now, that number has dropped to 58.1% of U.S. households, while the the percentage of cellphone-only households has risen from 5% to 39.4%, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The following chart, created by Statista, illustrates the rise of cellphones and the fall of landline phones in the U.S. over the past 10 years.
