For fixed telephony you need a provider for the connection and a provider for the fixed telephony service (calls).

You can buy a connection and calls from a single operator or from several operators, by using technologies based on the copper telephone line, the TV cable or the Internet.

What are the technical possibilities to make or receive calls from a fixed appliance ?

These are the possibilities in a nutshell:

Connection     Technology     Fixed telephony provider Possibilities and equipment
