You Won't Believe How Many Pay Phones Are Left In America


According to the FCC there are approximately 100,000 pay phones left on the streets of America. That is a vast difference from the millions that were still around as recently as 2000. About a fifth of America's 100,000 remaining pay phones are located in New York. Despite the decline in pay phones the folks who own them are still making money. Pay phone owners reported over $250 million in revenue in 2015. When is the last time that you used a pay phone?
