Quote from: AE_Collector on March 06, 2017, 01:06:16 PMYes, just like service from a cable company, neither the talk battery nor the ringing voltage arrives via the medium that brings the line to your property. It is introduced in the modem or box that converts to regular pots service for your telephone sets. Sometimes the ring current supplied by these boxes is so low that it won't ring mechanical ringers, only electronic ringers. But I would assume that in most cases it will ring any phone, it just may not be able to ring 4 or 5 of them.Terry

I did not know that fiber optics lines had power from the router. Makes sense now, The what isd the problem with losing landlines. I can use any of my phones with the latest technology. What has everyone been complaining about if landline go away. I found out today it effects me ZERO. What are all the adapters everyone is always recommending for new phone service, to use old phones ?D/P
