I'm not yet a customer, just poking them with questions so far.

It's a POTS style line, just like Bell.  All the normal phone features
are apparently included at no extra charge.

Yeah, I didn't see any limits on your own email server either.  I should

The dry loop fee is included in the $45 unlimited internet cost.  HST
is not included (naturally), nor is the modem rental if you decide to rent.

They will need your address and postal code to determine if their service
is available in your section of KW.
