We need a more specific question. If you are reffering more about DSL, try http://www.dslreports.com/faq/4968

What I have is an FXS interface in one equipment, what I want to do is to get that "number" to some of my neighbors so we can talk freely. So I wonder how much distance a cable phone line (two copper wire) can go.

Thanks
