I have UFB via Spark and have been converted over to their IP landline solution. Spark provided a DECT phone to use and this is connected to the the ONT. All working well.


 I now have a CISCO 7960 IP Phone that i would like to use if possible and want to know what options are available.


 1. Can it be connected to the ONT or connected to the router and used as well as the current DECT phone.

No you won't be able to use this on residential Spark VoIP services - they manage the whole thing so that it works properly. You won't get any SIP credentials out of them. Also, the 7960 is a bit old and cr4p nowadays. They are a bit of a mission to set up.

If you really want to use it you could move your landline to 2talk or spark business

I would highly recommend not using this phone. Unless you know a lot about VoIP configuring them can be a nightmare as even running SIP they're not designed to be connected to anything but a Cisco CUCM platform.
