Is there anyone that offers service on a copper line - Telus is constantly telling me they are going to move my home phone service to Fibre - which I do NOT want. If anyone knows of any provider that still offers copper service, please let me know!

@abbytreasures You have to ask for the fiber phone copper is not going to disappear. After fiber into house for net way faster than copper net i had the phone transfered to fiber finally a line that didn't hiss in your ear all the time. Maybe in a 100 years no wires to house at all phone net tv and possible power by a little dish on the roof. Don't want fiber refuse it its your house. Some people refused the fiber install a year later house sale fell through new people required high speed and fiber install was months and months out and they could not wait. Bidding wars for fiber houses but not that one lower offers now.
@abbytreasures Outage where i live over 3 days We only had 4 calls during that time batt still had power on morning 4th day. I unplugged the phone so it wouldn't use up batt for emergency only for us. Made 2 calls to family and got 2 calls that's when i unplugged phone. Just used generator and bbq.
@abbytreasures Shaw was offering phone over there coax cables (internet phone) Do people use it ? They use fiber cables on main runs to nodes that change fiber light signals to signals used by the coax. They had to use fiber to maintain internet speeds for all the customers. Copper can only do much. Talking to mainline fiber installers town to town i think the guy said one fiber can have 10,000 calls east and 10,000 calls west on just the one glass fiber same time.
