Dear Sonic Leadership,

I realize that bundling is very common these days, but given that most Americans don't use or desire LAN lines anymore, and that there are a variety of local taxes and fees associated with voice services, why do we have to purchase voice services in order to have internet services? It just seems unfortunate and disappointing to be told I need to pay all of the following fees without having any desire for voice services. I realize it doesn't add up to a lot, but it feels wasteful.
