POTS Replacement for Nationwide Retailer

Customer Challenge

An operator of several regional retail brands came to us with the following POTS headaches.

  • Escalating rates.
  • Significant burden on already-stretched IT staff to manage a full-company POTS transition.
  • Balancing the pressure to replace POTS quickly against the risk of making the wrong technology decision.

Granite Solution

Granite leveraged our extended agreements with major carriers to offer rate stability for two years, providing time to plan and execute upgrades to the right solutions for their business—including UCaaS, SIP trunking and Granite EPIK, our patented MFVN solution for their retail locations and elevators.

By the numbers

  • 2,300 POTS lines across 6 ILECs
  • Current monthly rates per POTS lines range from $59 to over $78
  • 2 ILECs already hiked rates by more than 8%
  • At least 12% increases from others expected in 2023
  • POTS service quality declining as ILECs invest less to maintain and repair
  • POTS repairs are now taking an average of 3 weeks
