The article reports on the remark made by the Los Angeles, California-based Time Warner Cable (TWC) over the advertisement ran by the AT&T Broadband system, warning the circuit-switched telephony clients on the possible dial tone lost. TWC filed an application to remove circuit-switched telephone service in favor of voice-over-Internet Protocol (VoIP) at the Public Utilities Commission office. Moreover, TWC identified the advertisement as deceiving and designed to scare and confuse the clients.
