If you're using DSL then yes, while it's not actually required you still have to have a connected line and they generally come with a phone number. If you're using cable then that depends on the provider, my provider for example make you take line rental with cable even though they're unrelated. You'd have to check with your prospective provider.

Do you want net access? If you just want the PC and PS3 to network with each other then no. Plug them in and set it up. Only need phone/cable if you want net.

Then yes. You need either a phone line or cable connection.
