Question: 

What are phone filters? Do I need to use them?

Answer: 

Phone filters, also known as microfilters, must be used with your Broadband service to ensure optimal performance. These filters eliminate the higher end frequencies used for your high speed access. When phone filters are not used, or not installed correctly, you'll experience static on your telephone line.
