No, as a consumer you are not required to have long distance on your residential telephone account.  Long distance is an optional service that can be added at the customer's discretion.  If you believe that you may ever need or want to add long distance services to your home phone, I would recommend returning to ##SITENAMESHORT to review the discount service providers available in your area.
