WASHINGTON, March 23, 2010 - Since the rise of mobile phones, a debate has raged among regulators whether mobile phones are a substitute or a compliment to land lines.

While many younger Americans today use only their cell phones, most people still maintain both home and mobile phones.

AT&T has just announced its newest “triple play” allowing the substitution of a mobile phone instead of the home phone. Additionally, the landlines can be either voice over Internet protocol (VOIP) or plain old telephone service (POTS). Verizon currently offers a quad play, which has landline, Fios high-speed Internet service, television and mobile.

Verizon and AT&T are the only mobile phone providers also providing television and internet services.
