Wireless internet provider Relish has teamed up with London-based espresso bar Soho grind to stage the 'Landline Exchange Café'. Guests can bring their old, used landline phones and exchange them for a cup of coffee and a coissant. The pop-up comes after research conducted by Relish showed that six in ten (61%) Londoners only keep a landline phone because they need it for their broadband connection. The survey also revealed that over half (57%) of Londoners considered the landline a ‘redundant piece of technology’ and almost a quarter (24%) are paying for a landline that we never use.
