Can hub be connected to a home jack so all other jacks can be used to plug in phones & tv?

You would need to be sure the phone lines in the house are physically disconnected from the original Telco wiring at the point where it comes into the house.

A connection to the TV likely would not work.

hi
What were the available inputs? it would be tough to know as Koodo wasn't the one selling the "multiple jacks", I would suggest you check the manual and see if it can take the normal phone connection.

Koodo home phone manual is here, The outout for phone is normal a phone plug (RJ11 I believe) https://www.koodomobile.com/help/sites/default/files/PDFs/alcatel_linkhub_user_manual_english_koodo_compressed_0.pdf

I would recommend a cordless phone that comes with the base and multiple handsets.
You can find them at walmart

There's an older phone spec called "ringer equivalency". The circuit that rings the "bell" in older landline phones has only a limited capacity. You will probably be good with most modern electronic phones plugged in thorughout the house, but stay away from older gear or fax machines. With a cordless phone set-up, only the base station accesses the ringer circuit directly, so the number of handsets it feeds is of no importance.

Normal phone plug/jack is RJ11. Ethernet/computer network is RJ45, which is wider. They are mutually exclusive.
