Yes sends it to a landline number.
Do you know that in the USA you need to use a fax machine for legal documents. Was playing games with a guy one night and he said i need to fax something i was like WTF ??I hope you know that the previous post about plugging the fibre into the fax machine is pure hogwash.
In that case you have one of two options, either asking person X if they don't have an email address that you can rather use or to sign up for a replacement service (1) as I mentioned in my first post. Examples of such services is the mweb service mentioned by @signates or http://www.faxmypc.co.za/I.dmn or http://www.faxfx.net/services/faxout-rates/
Do not sign up for a service that have a monthly fee (like https://www.isat.co.za/products/email-to-fax.aspx )
Personally I would suggest you invest some time to chat with person X, since going the email route would be better in the long run for an array of reasons.
It's depends on the fibre network operator,if it's Openserve then you can fax by connecting fax machine to Tel 1 on the ONT(huawei box)
You can request for your line to migrated over to Fibre and connect it to which ever Tel port the line will be commissioned onto,With regards to Security systems i am not sure if you can link it.I've just had fibre installed with Open Serve. There are two Tel ports on the Nokia ONT box.
Do you know if I can keep my old landline number with Telkom through Open Serve, or will it be a different number?
More curious than anything as I am considering cancelling the landline altogether, but we do own a fax and once in a while have to fax something. Yes yes I know buy a scanner already...
For those that don't know ADT's (not sure about other security companies) system is not compatible with fibre, but they do install some kind of wireless setup to replace it. Cost is about R300 a year and a once off setup fee of about R300.
