You don't need a guarantee of no contention, you just have to be able to
live with your web browser being slow if there isn't enough bandwidth to
support both your phone call and your simultaneous web browsing.  But the
voice only uses about 9kbps per call, worst case, so you've got to have a
_lot_ of simultaneous calls before it has a noticable effect on the rest
of your traffic.
