Is the landline dead?MoneySaving Poll Results

It seems the landline is dying with more and more people relying on a combination of their mobile phones and internet connections. But has it died yet? We last ran this poll in 2012 and wanted to see if anything's changed.

How many of your (non-work) calls made and received are on your home phone compared to mobile/web calls?

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
