It requires a cable pair from your house to the VRAD, but, does not require you have a "dial tone" line at your residence.  With that said it will require that you have a cable running from the NID on the side of your home to the location where the Residential Gateway will be located for the input or signal to be connected.

Depends on what you mean by "a phone line:"

 

You do not have to have phone service with AT&T to have U-verse High Speed Internet.

 

However, you will need a physical pair of wires (maybe two) to carry it to your house.  They can provide this drop as part of connecting your service.

Is this a new feature? Because a few years ago when the ATT technician went to my mom’s house to connect her to U-verse he told her she had to have a land line and needed new telephones for the U-verse to work. Sounds like he may have lied to a senior citizen to get more money out of her if she in fact doesn’t need a “dial tone” landline.
