My Verizon charge for that is about $40 (with discount for combining
cell phone), and also gives a package of features. FCC line
cost, etc. extra but the total cost is much less than $88.

There are other wireline competitors with cheap packages, too.

Note that many people may be paying close to that already just to have
a regional-wide free calling area. I had that it and it was another
only $15 to go unlimited national. I don't make that many toll calls
but it paid for me; plus I have the convenience of not watching the
clock anymore or worrying about toll calls. I also can call back
other callers so they don't run up their bill, so my friends save
money too.

A lot of people who use VOIP still keep a wireline in reserve or for
other uses. There is still a cost for that.
