Do you mean they have bought a BB package.
In which case, after registering for BB, a special modem should be supplied usually by the service provider together with filters for the telephone line.

No normal modems do not work as BB is connected all the time, and does not have to be dialled.

Tell your friend to check, as all BB suppliers proved a special modem.

Many ADSL providers sell wires-only packages that allow you to choose and source your own modem.
