Important Note: 

Phone lines are being removed or superseded in many regions and traditional copper (POTS/PSTN) lines are often replaced by a range of IP over fiber alternatives. Migrating to these services with POTS codecs may be successful if the service supports a traditional fax machine. In many situations bandwidth over these networks is too limited even if connections are possible.
