[PLUG] Cord Cutting Options

What are the best options for phone/video content/etc for those
interested in cord cutting these days?

I know somebody with FIOS who is paying a rather high amount and they
are considering dropping to data-only, and then possibly adding a VOIP
or cellular option for phone (or just sticking with their cell
phones).  They don't make a lot of calls, and for TV they mainly watch
a few shows on the major networks, history, discovery, etc.

One question that came up is whether there is a cellular ATA out
there.  They only rarely use one of their cell phones so they might
consider just plugging the SIM into such an ATA if it exists, and then
unplugging it if they need to use the cell phone.  A bluetooth ATA
might be another option, where the cell phone provides the phone
connection, and any phone in the house can be used to access it (which
is the opposite of how the "bluetooth ata" devices I get in a Google
search work).

What are the best options these days?
