IS the land line phone required for DSL?

Considering dropping the line line to my house but wonder if it affects the FastDSL service.  IS the land line phone required for DSL?

 

Are there additional charges that apply?

You can get DSL service without a home phone. Here is a link to more information: http://www.att.com/dsl/shop/plansDirect.jsp?showUnqualifiedIPDSLAM=&promoCode=&wtLinkName=Get_DSL_No...

You must have the physical wire installed to get DSL, but no home phone service is needed. You may not get any discount bundles for JUST the DSL service, but, that is what you will pay once the discount expires anyways. Or, maybe you will get lucky, and get a discount on a single service. Good luck, either way;

Re: IS the land line phone required for DSL?

I was told that it was required to have home phone to get dsl in my home. I never use the phone and they were billing me $70 month and I wanted to cancell service. Once i called to cancell a lady told me she could just remove the phone services and let me keep just the DSL. Will that affect me being able to use a wireless router???
