Daily LifeFrench Telephone Jack

Below is an image of a typical telephone jack in France. You will notice that a French telephone jack is much bigger than what you would find in the US.
The adapter is type F-010 as is the jack.

Interestingly enough the telephone connector pin is (I believe) the same as in the US. That is RJ11, but there is a large adapter that the phone connector pin plugs into and then the adapter is plugged into the phone jack.

This all means that if you have a DSL line you will have two adapters sticking out of your wall. The first will be for your DSL modem and the second will be for your telephone. Your French ISP will send you the adapter (sometimes two) that the modem will plug into. Normally you will get the adapters when you receive your modem, but if need be you can buy DSL adapters in most supermarkets.
