    Typically No - Telcom circuits are just that - circuits (Carrier loops and many connections through Carrier Telco punchdown blocks) and not direct pair of wires without any connecting points. Telco circuits are provided by carriers to deliver their own signaling form a CO (Central Office) to a customer or as a leased circuit from one customer premise to another through the carrier infrastructure. These circuits frequently have other high frequency communications running on them and interfere with nearby other pairs of wiring and are incompatible with Ethernet Extender equipment and signals.

    Solution: If you can get your carrier to provide you with a clean pair of wire straight through from point A to point B without going through any of the carrier CO or connection points such as Telco blocks or other transmission equipment - you will be fine.
