Hi,

FiOS finally came to my neighborhood, and aided by Comcast's customer service I'm considering getting Digital Voice. However, I would like to keep my (Verizon) landline as well. Is it possible to have both, Verizon landline and Verizon digital voice?

Thank you!

With FIOS Digital voice is the landline.    They call it that to point out that it's digital rather than analog.

As Walt noted, there are terminology issues that may be confusing.  Check out these posts:

Hi Armond,

Thank you for your response. I'm no expert but I figured it had to be possible since the two technologies use a completely different infrastructure. Thanks again!
