Is broadband only right for you?

A broadband only deal is perfect if you don't make calls from your landline. Broadband only is also ideal if you don't want to bundle your subscription TV (such as Sky) or pay for separate TV services with another provider (like Netflix or Amazon Prime TV).

You'll also be paying less for services that you don’t want, giving you the cheapest broadband possible. You may still have to pay line rental for your landline connection, but not having a handset or call package means that you can avoid nuisance calls.

Cable.co.uk compares broadband only packages from the leading UK providers, saving you time and money. Look out for our exclusive deals you won't find anywhere else.

Broadband only explained

Although a ‘broadband only deal’ sounds simple, providers have their own definitions of what this type of package includes and involves.

Broadband only, for example, could mean broadband with no landline phone line at all, broadband with a landline phone connection provided by another company, or broadband without a combined TV, landline phone call package, or mobile phone provision.

Internet only deals can be difficult to understand, so this guide will help you get to grips with what they are, and whether this type of broadband deal is right for you.

What is a broadband only deal?

On this page, we’ll mostly talk about deals that include only the provision of broadband services, without any landline, mobile phone, or TV services included. However, many of the deals here include pay as you go calls (PAYG), but be aware that should you need to use the landline rates will vary so you will need to read the fine print of your broadband contract.

Compare broadband only deals

Do I still need a landline if I don’t use the phone?

Generally, most types of broadband do require a landline connection to deliver an internet signal, so even if you don’t want to make calls with it, you’ll still need to have a phone line or landline installed. And that means paying line rental. This is because both 'standard' ADSL and the widely available fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) broadband require a landline to deliver services to your property.

However, there are several alternatives if you really want a broadband deal that doesn’t require a landline. The latest fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) broadband which is being rapidly rolled out across the UK doesn't need a conventional landline at all. So we're expecing more broadband only deals to become available. And, because they use their own network and no phone lines are involved, Virgin Media doesn't require a landline and so can offer true broadband only services. Finally, there are also a number of smaller cable internet providers such as Hyperoptic who can offer internet access without a landline.

Contrary to what you might think, it’s not always the case that you’ll save any money by opting for a landline-free broadband deal. And with both ADSL and most fibre optic products, the cost of line rental is included in your overall monthly bill.

Can I get fibre broadband without a landline?

Technically, yes. A wide range of fibre broadband deals are available that don’t include phone calls. But most will still come with an actual line, even if the package doesn't include any telephone useage.

As we’ve already mentioned, most types of broadband require a landline phone connection. And (Virgin Media and FTTP broadband aside), fibre broadband is no exception. So if you don’t already have a landline at your home, you may well need to have one installed before you can start enjoying your new fibre broadband deal. We’ve written a guide to broadband installation to help you understand what to expect when you get your broadband installed.

Which UK providers offer broadband only deals?

Most UK providers offer broadband only deals, without TV, landline phone calls or mobile phone provision included.

Our comparison lists every UK provider who offers their version of broadband only. This can be split into broadband without a phone line, and broadband with a phone line but just PAYG calls. Here’s a run down of what the major UK providers offer in terms of broadband only deals:

  • BT – BT has recently started offering all its broadband packages as 'true' broadband only without phone calls or a landline
  • EE – This provider offers broadband speeds of between 10Mbps for standard and 67Mbps for fibre broadband. And it's fibre optic deals are available without a landline or call packages
  • Virgin Media – Virgin offers all four of its fibre speeds (averaging 108Mbps, 213Mbps, 362Mbps and 516Mbps) as a ‘true’ broadband only deal, with no landline phone connection at all
  • TalkTalk – They will allow you to take any of its broadband deals with PAYG calls only – but of course a landline will still need to be installed in the unlikely event of you not having one
  • Sky – Sky offers broadband with PAYG calls, so technically there is a landline included – and hence line rental is in there too
  • SSE – SSE offers all three of its available speeds (11Mbps, 35Mbps, and 63Mbps) as broadband only deals with PAYG calls included
  • Shell Energy Broadband – Averaging speeds of between 11Mbps and 63Mbps, Shell Energy offers its broadband only packages with PAYG calls
  • Direct Save Telecom – DST is a no-frills provider offering some of the UK’s cheapest broadband only deals, with typical speeds of between 11Mbps to 63Mbps. Calls are offered as PAYG with their broadband only deals
  • Vodafone – Vodafone offers fibre broadband internet only deals with speeds between 35Mbps and 63Mbps. Again, PAYG alls are included, so not 'true' broadband only
  • Plusnet – Plusnet provides a wide range of internet only deals including PAYG calls with speeds ranging from 10Mbps to 66Mbps

Virgin Media broadband only

Virgin Media were the first major broadband provider to offer broadband only without a phone line, although more providers are now begining to offer true standalone broadband. Here's a few of Virgin Media's most popular deals:

Could a bundle be a better option?

You may decide that it's best to retain a landline, even if you feel you're unlikely to use it. After all, it can be reassuring to know it's there for emergency calls. And if you do then you could save money by combining broadband and landline phone provision, bundling together broadband and TV, or bringing all three together with one provider. Many people also find it more convenient to receive one bill, and deal with one company, for a combined broadband package.

Broadband and phone packages: As we've mentioned, most broadband deals do still include a landline, since your internet is delivered via this type of connection. Often, no calls are included with this landline and can be made only on a pay-as-you-go basis, which can be expensive.

If you decide you do want to make calls, then a broadband and phone package including things like free evening and weekend calls, or even unlimited anytime calls, can save a lot of of money. But only if you’re a regular landline user – for example if you're in an area with unreliable mobile signal.

However, if like many people you already have an unlimited mobile phone contract (and a rock solid signal), then there's little need to sign up for a broadband and landline phone deal. You could just be wasing money.

Broadband and TV packages: Not all broadband providers offer TV services within their deals, but those that do have a great range of choice that will satisfy all types of user. If you watch a decent amount of TV, combining a package with the likes of Sky, Virgin Media and BT can save you money and give you access to some fantastic shows.

Broadband, landline phone and TV packages: Combining your broadband, landline phone and TV provision in one deal can save you a good amount of money, along with being a convenient way to manage your entertainment and communications services with one monthly bill and one provider to contact if something goes wrong. Not all providers offer this type of deal.
