Alert message

DSL broadband services operate using the standard copper telephone circuit. In this case the gateway modem plugs into the existing wall socket and your telephone plugs into the voice port on the gateway modem. There is no Network Termination Device (NTD) or power supply/battery backup equipment, but a small noise cancelling module will be connected into the telephone circuit.

Naked DSL services do not allow ordinary telephones to be used, but you can implement a VOIP telephone service through one of the data ports on the gateway modem supplied with the service.
