Re: new voice customer

Comcast doesn't supply telephones, you may choose the one that you like best.

 

Comcast Digital Voice replace your "landline" from the local telephone company.  You connect the telephony modem to your existing coaxial cable for your TV by using the supplied splitter.  Your telephone or cordless phone base plugs into the L1/L2 jack on your telephony modem.  You do need to contact Comcast support to get your new telephony modem provisioned for your account.
