My primary residence is in a different province/territory and I have phone service there through Bell. I want to arrange for internet and tv service in Kelowna at my secondary residence but I don't want or need a phone.Can I still get Telus internet and tv hook up in Kelowna without having a local phone number?
Yes. That is called a 'dry loop'(or dark dsl). A 'wet loop' is an active phone number for use.
It should be no extra charge for dry-loop.
There is still a phone number on the line(not active for phone use) so that Telus can identify where it is.
People who use a dry-loop, use VOIP or a Cell for their phone at home.
The third party DSL companies(like Teksavvy) have to charge a dry-loop fee, since the Telco charges it to them for maintenence of phone line.
