Up One Level



POTS - Plain Old Telephone Service. This acronym was born in the early 1990s when everything (it seemed) HAD to have an acronym. The term POTS was created by systems' professionals to clarify their documentation and diagrams when referring to networks and computer links which perhaps only used or required the use of, the plain old telephone system! It also implies the older non digital copper wiring which was 'OK' for voice but was poor for data at speeds beyond 4800bps.
