2 wire modem

Dec 7, 2018 9:43AM PST

Our IPC ran 2 telephone lines to our house to get 15 Mbps download and we are waiting on a new modem. I have never heard of using 2 telephone lines and can't find anything on the internet about it. Has anyone here heard of that? We were getting 10 Mbps before with only one. This has been going on since September. Supposedly we now have to wait until "corporate" approves a new modem.

My neighbor had that and they call that a home run. They run a pair just for the modem and another pair (line) for your telephone. It can help.

So one line will be for the phone and the other the modem? That makes more sense. We did call on Monday to the 800 number and they checked and showed our modem had kicked off 46 times since Dec 1. So they thought the modem just needed to be changed out and of course they are supposedly doing that. The guy that ran the wire said we would only get 7 Mbps until the new modem was hooked up. It sounded kind of BS to me. In fact, if all they did was separate the lines our old modem should be working?

I guess we are just getting the run around by this outfit. We've been with them for years and then they yanked the cable and have nothing to back it up with. No other phone or internet provider in our area thanks to Marsha Blackburn.
