The decrease is attributed to a scale-back in areas of Internet access lines and expected inflation costs for telephone rates and maintenance costs. Telephony (PBX) maintenance requirements are projected to have a saving from efficiencies and technology advancements (such as DSL communication lines) which may help fund higher access speeds as the amount of electronic correspondence increases with constituents.
