DSL and phone service don't always work well side by side. For this reason, you need to install a filter. What this does is literally block the DSL Broadband signals from wreaking havoc on your phone system. Users that neglect to use filters may experience static or hissing noises when trying to use the phone. The filter also prevents phones from doing damage to DSL.
