Virgin Media offers cheap broadband without a landline
Many of us are reliant on our internet connection, but some simply have no need for a landline with free calls. If that sounds like you, then we - and the Guardian's computer editor Jack Schofield - would be inclined to recommend a standalone broadband package from a cable provider, such as Virgin Media.
With Virgin Media, you won't need a home phone to get great value high-speed broadband. For a total cost of just £20 per month - without the need to pay any line rental - you can get download speeds of up to 10Mb/s with unlimited usage, via the company's fibre optic broadband network.
Furthermore, a £5 discount will be applied to each of your first three bills and it's only a one-year contract, although you will have to pay a one-off upfront fee of £40.
This deal represents excellent value for money in our eyes, but we think it's worth paying that little bit more for a better broadband package.
You can get up to 20Mb/s download speeds, no download limit and no need to pay a connection charge if you opt for Virgin Media's XL Broadband offer, which costs £30 per month.
However, for the first three months you'll only have to pay the discounted rate of £20 per month.
Both of these offers also include a free wireless router and internet security.
