MetTel Secures USPS Contract to Modernize Landline Network

The U.S. Postal Service has selected MetTel to upgrade its Plain Old Telephone Lines infrastructure across 17,000 locations nationwide.

The project, leveraging the communication service provider’s POTS Transformation solution, will convert USPS’s existing copper-based phone system to a digital network, delivering improved reliability, increased visibility and advanced features at a lower cost, MetTel said.

Importantly, MetTel said USPS will not need to replace its current phone equipment. MetTel’s solution combines its managed services with DataRemote’s “POTS in a Box” hardware, enabling USPS to benefit from the advantages of internet protocol-based telephony while maintaining its existing analog devices.

The upgraded system will also support specialty lines, including elevators, alarms, emergency call boxes, fax machines and modems, and future applications.

According to MetTel, millions of POTS lines remain in use across the United States, highlighting the need for cost-effective solutions that can bridge the gap between legacy systems and modern technology.
