Confusingly, this is often still called a "modem" by many ISPs (to be fair, many of these do also contain ADSL/VDSL modems). If your ISP provides a VoIP service, this normally plugs into the ATA built into the ISP router. In some less common cases the phone plugs into the ONT.

AFAICS (at my mother's), Spark's ONT also provides the ATA (i.e. telephone), and connects to the wifi router to provide internet access.
