If there isn't a phone line then I believe Chorus charges $402 for connection.

If you have a line into your house already then our standard connection of $49.95 should be fine. Easy way to check if to see if you have jack points wired up.

Otherwise, it can be quite expensive. $260 to be connected and have a jack point installed, even more if you need a coppper line actually connected to your house.

Hmm, I wonder where I got $402 from!

Edit: Aha!
