I would suggest that the exponential decrease in POTS is driven by cell phones, not VOIP - I just get my cell phone from the store, any store, and use it, almost anywhere. It's just like my land line but without the wire tether. I get wireless without VOIP complications.

Of course, we could discuss Long Distance rates for land lines vs cell or Skype (VOIP for almost free). But that is really another discussion.
