Recall Eyesurf Digital Phone Service runs through your High Speed Internet connection.
Rather than plugging your phones into your home's existing telephone jacks, you would plug them into one of the phone jacks on this ATA unit. The other port of the ATA will then connect into your router
The result is that you are able to use all of your existing phone sets with your low-cost Eyesurf Digital Phone Service. See below for reference
** Note: If you are subscribing to our Bronze, Silver or Gold bundles, then you do not require this unit, as the modem that we supply (Thomson 784) already has phone jacks built into the modem itself. Otherwise if you are subscribing to our Platinum bundle, then you would require this unit to use your phone service.
On every house is there is what is called a NID or demarcation point. This is a grey box that typically has Bell written across it.
It is usually found on the side or rear of your house, close to the power metre. See below for typical image
Eyesurf is responsible for any outside wiring up to and including the NID. From that point inward, it is your responsiblity as the building/home owner
In most cases, your NID is already wired to one or more of the phone jacks in your house, so no additional wiring is necessary. However, if it is not and you require any additional wiring completed inside the home, then it would be your responsibility and at your expense as the owner of the house/building
So what exactly is Eyesurf VIP Bundle, and how does it differ from our other bundles?
VIP High Speed Internet can run up to twice as fast our standard High Speed Internet package, depending on your location
Traditional Phone Line
VIP Home Phone is a traditional landline phone service, similar to what you would get with Bell Canada. In contrast, recall that our standard phone service is Digital/VoIP and runs through your Internet connection
Full Home Installation
Lastly, all VIP services include FULL home installation right to a phone jack of your choice
** Please note: Due to the added costs that we incur with provisioning VIP services, last month's service fee is required as a deposit in order to subscribe to our VIP bundle
