Sorry for the confusion. :)

adsl or any varient of DSL 'supports' voice because they go over the 
same wire. 'voice' doesn't run over tcp/ip if you have a DSL connection. 
the pipe(POTS) can handle both analog(tradition voice, phone calls) and 
digital(your internet connection) signals at the same time -therfore 
letting dsl you talk on the phone( in the traditional sense) and browse 
the web at the same time.

you're right on james.. i thought tony was asking about VoDSL(voice over 
IP), and not voice over POTS in the tradition sense.
