Bad house wiring and CDV

Bad house wiring and CDV

I currently have TV and Internet with Comcast and I am considering adding voice.  My house telephone wiring is old and needs to be replaced, which I cannot afford to do at this time.  Does CDV require the use of existing house wiring and jacks?

No, you can plug the phone into the socket on the back of the eMTA/Gateway modem that Comcast provide.

Would be better if you had a cordless phone, then you can plug the base into the modem and place other phones around the home.
