"This is a public service that consumers have had for a long time," said Mindy Spatt of TURN. "Even if call volumes are down, that doesn't mean no one is using it. This is just another example of AT&T telling the public, 'We want your money but we don't really care about you.' "
Of AT&T's claim that most people get the time signal online or by looking at their cell phones, Spatt said, "I'm sure that's true for wealthy people like phone company executives, but we're concerned with less well-to-do people who rely on a landline for all sorts of things, including a time signal."
