A "home run" is nothing more than a length of suitable telephone cable connected to a test jack inside a NID that has the DSL signal, that cable is routed directly to the modems location.

This Keptel pots splitter was very easy to install. It is a low pass filter and it snaps into place in a Keptel NID. Included with the splitter is a bracket which is for mounting in a Siecor NID.
As noted in the photo at one time there was a second voice line used for dial up. It had its own separate 4 wire cable (red,green,black,yellow) run to computer location. The cable has untwisted wire and the crosstalk made it unusable for more than one voice line but ok for DSL
Below is a image of the 4 wire cable
