Home telephone, land-line service is not required in order to have internet access today. Freestanding DSL technology makes it possible to get fast internet connection without a phone. EarthLink is one provider of this type of service.

This is a yes and no answer. If you want DSL then most phone companies would require you to have a basic line installed. If you want cable internet through your cable TV company then no you do not need to have a home phone line.
