Are you sure? I can understand why the phone company might require an active line for logistical reasons; but I've never asked. Certainly the DSL modems should work without it on either end; but if the phone company decides to disconnect your line from the central office to make room for another, the DSL provider would no longer have access to your line. Even so, I've never seen this requirement stated on any of the DSL provider web sites. Perhaps it's a requirement only disclosed in the contract?no company will provide DSL without an active land line. technically, i believe it is possible but i think FCC regulations and telco greed combined to prevent people from ditching their land lines. only exception is for SDSL which is typically more expensive and unnecessary for most home users. ADSL is residential class.mr burns
