When I got FTTC, I signed up for the optional land-line phone service, 
and also tried VoIP. The ISP's phone worked fine, the VoIP was fiddly, 
and unreliable.

But the only calls I got on the "home" phone were from telemarketers. So 
I canceled the service, and used my mobile. I have not missed having a 
home phone in the subsequent seventeen years.

If I needed a home phone, I would get a "fixed wireless desk phone". 
These look like a wired phone, but have the electronics of a mobile 
inside, and use a SIM card.
