Jul 7: Recording of "Sam" with "your local telephone provider" scam

Man's voice: "Hi. This is Sam with your local telephone provider. Our records indicate you are due for a rate discount on your phone service. Our plan requires a high-speed internet connection. And is only nineteen ninety-five per month. This includes unlimited local and long-distance calls to anywhere, any time, in the U.S., Canada, and most countries. With no hidden fees. Press one now and your new monthly phone bill will be lowered to nineteen ninety-five per month. Again, if you have not recently upgraded and would like to cut your entire telephone bill to nineteen ninety-five a month, press the number one key to upgrade now. Or press three to be removed from our marketing list."

What is this nameless "your local telephone provider"? My guess is that it's a scam.
