Embarq cutting off some subscribers – USA

According to The Hook, Embarq has begun contacting clients informing them that their wireless service will be withdrawn as of October this year. The operator is looking at a high speed fixed line business across 33 states when it merges with CenturyTel and believes that the wireless market is becoming too crowded in terms of usage, with the future of telecommunications resting in enhanced high speed services.

With Qwest blaming a Q209 revenue decline in voice by 13% on consumer access line pressure it maybe that Embarq is making the right move in moving on from wireless into a modern era of fixed line services.
