existing phone lines?

I have comcast cable tv, if I get phone service from comcast does comcast use my existing phone company wires and jacks?

Re: existing phone lines?

Comcast provides phone service over a emta cable modem.  They would send you a new modem with that.   The modem would provide the phone jack.   You can plug in a phone to the modem or in most cases you can run a phone line from the modem to a home phone jack and back feed it to the other phone jacks.
