"POTS - Plain Old Telephone Set (Just for Fun - We'll see if anyone notices?)"

 

This plain old telephone man noticed. It's actually "plain old telephone SERVICE," and it's an actual RBOC / LEC term. (Regional Bell Operating Company / Local Exchange Carrier).

 

POTS, as opposed to PANS, which is "Pretty Amazing New Stuff" referring to optical fiber packet transmission, for example.
