Re: fiber phone line is this VOIP

The VM 21st century voice (21CV) is not a true VOIP connection in its present form. It is just a different means of delivering the VM landline to customers. You are still paying for/receiving a landline service, just via a different means.

A standard telephone connects to the TEL1 socket on the back of the VM hub via an adapter lead which takes a standard BT plug (rather than a connection to one of the RJ45 network sockets).
