If you can get virgin you don't need a landline I believe, thats what I have in my flat and we get the TV stuff + BB with no Landline...
What if I chose not to have a landline?
I don't underand Matt. I got a 18 month contract with £10 off by waiting till after my contract ended.
£25 contract for £15 and free broadband (with bt landline)
Longweight - if you have cable to your door, you don't need a landline. However, Virgin also offers a DSL option for those outside the cable footprint (about 49% of the UK), which will need a landline. DSL is pushed over the copper (or sometimes aluminium) lines originally installed by BT for voice.
Landline usage is falling steadily, because people tend to just use mobiles or VoIP instead of circuit switched voice. People get landlines purely for the broadband connection - I've done it myself. It's a huge problem for the companies that own this stuff.
AS Cynic-al says, you can (and should) haggle like hell. I saved £60 a year on my Virgin connection - landline, M TV package and XL broadband for £28 a month. It would have cost more if I'd said no to the phone line.
No cable in the wilds where Matt is moving to. Infact he will be lucky to have 'leccy
