IIRC the phones will work fine with a DSL line, although you may find the quality is reduced. I think the problems really start once you have the DSL modem actually doing something (IE surfing the net) My filters came free with my modem and I've never found the desire to try it out without them...

RE: modem in post

You line will not be effected, until a DSL modem starts to SYNC with the exchange.

Even then you can use the phone, but it sound like two lines cross, 1 being a modem.

People report different symptoms from this, and these range from line OK, to slowly deteriorating calls.

You may also note that DSL SYNC is lost when using the phoen without splitters.

Thanks Philip ,
I think Ive got it now - a bit like a cross-over in an audio setup , seperating bass and treble.

Cheers.

Bringing it down to basics, yes.

However, the frequency range between the two here, is a lot bigger.

It is your DSL modem that causes the noises, due to it's proximity to other devices.

The line loss of the cable to your house, usualy causes the noise bleed from the exchange, to fade away by the time it reaches your house.

My adsl was activated on a Friday and the starter pack arrived on the following Tuesday, so with a bit of luck you could have yours on Friday.
