FAQ: Why are there no longer phones in all machine rooms?
Analog telephones were only retained in the main network room and the main electrical/mechanical rooms of each building. These lines are institutionally (centrally) funded. Telephone lines in other machine rooms can be requested to be installed as VoIP at the expense of any unit that opts to do so. Lines that the unit did not choose to retain were suspended prior to being disconnected on the VoIP project.
