Both copper wiring and copper plumbing are already being removed from houses regardless of the Telco's wishes by vandals whenever a house is abandoned and even from occupied homes that are left unattended for any significant length of time. Plumbing and electrical wiring is of course preferred because it's heavier gauge, but when copper becomes valuable enough, copper telephone wiring will be targeted too.

I wrote "Deceased" on a junk mail envelope hoping that they would stop sending junk to me, and put the envelope back into my mailbox. A day or two later I stopped getting any mail at all! The post office was returning ALL of my mail because they assumed I was actually dead. Convincing them otherwise cost a lot of time and trouble.

1,700 professional architects and engineers who do design high rise steel framed buildings like the three that supposedly "collapsed" on their own disagree with you .

Any given program, when running, is obsolete.
