In the UK, most houses need to have a telephone line to have internet so if you are paying for it why not use it. Also some fttc/phone package deals make the landline use cheaper than VOIP.
I've found that most people are interested in the cost and quality of phone calls than the technology. Here on this forum it is the technology which drives most of our interests. And if you save money, all the better.
However I'm a no landline household and that was driven largely by cost. But technology is how I earn a crust so I'm not afraid of VOIP/routers/networks and debugging issues that have arisen. I doubt my next door neighbours would go this route though as it is not seen as easy.
When you can routinely get bare fttc at a sensible price then people may move away to VOIP if it makes financial sense and the technology is easy to use.
