I can't answer because it varies across the country, so just ask the providers.
if i get dsl do i still need to get a phone line working before i can get dsl? what i am trying to see is the following. i dont want a phone line, but i want vonage. now to get vonage i need broadband. so if i get dsl dont i need to have a working phone line???? but if i need a phone line to get dsl and dsl to get vonage. then there would be no point to get vonage, because then i would already have a phone line and vonage? i dont see how that works. any help would be appriciated.
