1. Why The Confusion Around Broadband Only Deals?

Generally speaking, broadband only deals do not include home phone or digital TV services that feature in many bundle packages. However, broadband providers and the British public have inadvertently created some confusion in the market by having their own definitions for broadband only deals.

2. Different Definitions Of Broadband Only

There are four definitions of broadband only deals used by broadband suppliers and the British public. We've listed them below:

  • Broadband with no phone line required - this is what the majority of the British public assume broadband only will mean. However, in reality only two providers offer this and unfortunately there is no cost saving as a line is still required to carry the broadband signal into a home
  • Broadband only with phone line rental - this is what the majority of broadband providers mean when they offer broadband only deals. A phone line is still required and line rental is still payable. A phone call plan (like evening & weekend calls to UK landlines) is not included, however, calls can be made on a pay as you use basis and be billed in accordance with the providers phone call tariff
  • Broadband without TV - with the surge in popularity of bundled broadband, phone & TV packages, some people really mean broadband without TV when they refer to or search for a broadband only deal
  • Mobile broadband - this can be considered broadband only as the data-only SIM card connects you to the same 3/4/5G mobile network that your smartphone uses. No phone line is required, while no calls or texts can be made. It's an expensive option for your home compared to the options above and a strong mobile signal is essential
  • 3. Which Providers Offer Broadband Only Deals?

    Pretty much all broadband suppliers in the UK offer their version of a broadband only deal, the majority of which include phone line rental and pay as you use calls. You can search and compare them on this page.

    Only Virgin Media and Hyperoptic supply a broadband only deal where no phone line rental is required. However, as mentioned earlier, there is no cost saving as a line is still required to carry the broadband signal into a home.

    4. Do I Need A Phone Line Or Not?

    Yes, in most cases you will need a phone line. That's because pretty much all of the UK's broadband providers supply the Internet (broadband and fibre) to homes via a phone line using BT's Openreach network.

    As mentioned earlier, Virgin Media and Hyperoptic broadband only deals do not require a traditional phone line, more like a specific cable line or full fibre line. These lines can still provide phone call services if you require them.

    In general, it is still regarded as very useful to have a landline in your home and not rely totally on the signal of your mobile phone - especially should an emergency situation arise.

    5. Other Frequently Asked Questions

    Do I Need A Phone Line For Plusnet Broadband?

    Yes. As your phone line also supplies the broadband signal into your home, you will be unable to order Plusnet Broadband unless you agree to switch your landline to them.

    Is Fibre Broadband Without A Phone Line Available?

    Yes, both Virgin Media and Hyperoptic fibre broadband deals are available without a phone line, however, their networks are only available in certain geographic areas.

    Fibre broadband only deals with phone line rental are readily available from suppliers like BT, Plusnet, Sky and TalkTalk who all use the Openreach network.

    Do I Need A Phone Line For TalkTalk Broadband?

    Yes. As your phone line also supplies the broadband signal into your home, you will be unable to order TalkTalk Broadband unless you agree to switch your landline to them.

    What's The Cheapest Broadband Only Deal?

    That's not easy to answer as broadband providers can change their prices on a daily basis. You are in good hands though, as we update our listings every day and order them by first year cost. It's up to you though, as you can compare deals on our site by other factors aswell, such as speed and contract periods. Head on up to the top of this page to enter your postcode and get started.
