Landline phones in offices will be replaced by smartphones within 5 years, suggests a study.

The study by Virgin Media Business says the once vital office landline will soon be a thing of the past
Peter Cochrane, a futurologist, says wireless technology will replace landlines, once optical fibre is installed in offices

65% of chief information officers say the desk telephone is likely to become reduntant as the dominance of smartphones grows.
62% of those interviewed said the next piece of office technology that is most likely to disappear is the desktop computer.

The pace of change with technology is having a transformative effect on the way we work. A decade ago it was unthinkable to suggest an office without landphones. Now it’s hard to imagine being separated from smartphones
