Supposedly it was an old-style POS half-ringer, which I witnessed the guy take out of the telephone box on the house.  While it did help with our DSL not crapping out every time the phone rang and we temporarily had awesome service (which, alas, I did not take real advantage of), we went back to crap yesterday afternoon and evening.
