Maximum number of phones to a domestic landline

Hello there

Is there a maximum number of phones that can be connected to a domestic land line?

I would like to connect 7 handsets including a fax machine to 1 domestic land line.

 

Thanks i advance

If you mean the number of handsets then no, you can connect as many as you need/want. 

 

Hope that helps.

Not true each phone has what is known as a ringer equivalance number

and I think a number of 4 rem  is still the max

 

Each item will have its number printed on it you just add them up

How can you increase the number beyond 4?

Use a cordless base, with a number of handsets - AFAIAA, only the base counts toward your total.

You can get a REN booster so that you can have more than 4 REN loading on your line.
