I am surprised

that you need to ask your question.

According to the digital services you mention in your profile and the About Us link in that web site, your services are the world leader in providing digital out of Home media services and solutions.

I am surprised that you ask such a basic question, given your expertise.

Most ISP's have different plans: the more you pay per month, the higher the speed.
And for some wireless subscriptions: if you used your monthly allowance, the speed drops to very low or even zero.

Try to post new questions in new discussions.

But no. In my country, most cities, many places you don't need the phone line. DSL includes a phone due to how DSL works but even there you can research (Google) this _> NAKED DSL.
