PHONE JACKS

I would like to put a phone in the kitchen of my house. The phone is pluged into the Xfinity modom and works perfictly. I tried to plug the phone wire from the modom to the phone jack in my house and use a phone in another room, nothing but stadic. The owner of the home before me had the phone company for their service. So my question is do you think my home is still conected to the phone service ped at the street?

It could be, depends on what company the previous owner used. Have a tech out to troubleshoot if your not sure. Be prepared for a service call charge as it is considered inside wiring. If you don't already have it, the Service Protection Plan covers you for service call charges.
