Re: Is Bell Obligated to Provide me Demarcation Outlet?
Yup, that is an Excelsus Z-200SM filter, a filter that is used for one telephone device. But myself and others have used it and other similar filters in the same way. Honestly, until this thread, it's been doing it's thing for years without me giving it a second thought. It's nice to not have to worry about filtering each phone in the house because we have a LOT of phone devices: Two cordless phones with four handsets, two corded phones, a fax machine, two ExpressVu receivers, a DSL modem, and a dialup faxmodem. Plus my wife will be starting a home business soon and that means another two lines coming in to the house! BTW, I sync at 5 megs which is the maximum I'm entitled to under my current contract with Sympatico.
When terminating cable, you can either terminate it on a punch block or a screw terminal. The common phone jacks you get almost anywhere have screw terminals, which are convenient for the average homeowner. That's what I used in the first example before I moved to a punch block.
