Installation of Home Phone Service without using existing jacks

Hello, I have Rogers internet and cable TV. I am thinking of adding the home phone service as well. I live in a condo and would like to have the phone modem installed in my unit without touching the existing phone jacks structure. My plan is to simply plug in a cordless phone to the back of the modem. I do not want to use the existing structure because there are building phone room issues - too many techs accessing the room and I lose my phone service on a regular basis as things get "unplugged by accident". So, I'll leave the existing wiring out of the equation to, hopefully, have a more reliable service. Thus, any problem to just install the phone modem without touching the existing phone wiring? I realize I would need to plug a phone directly to the back of the phone modem to have phone service. How big is the home phone modem compared to a internet modem?

Re: Installation of Home Phone Service without using existing jacks

Good afternoon @lem1,


You can absolutely plug a phone directly into the home phone modem. There is no need to use existing phone jacks at all. It doesn't take up a ton of space and is comparable in size to our Internet modems.
