I wouldn't need TV or anything really.

How much do you pay? Do you always need a landline?

I need the connection to be good.

I pay £10 a month for plusnet my experience hasn't being too good very slow however I live close to a railway and when I say close very close on the other hand my friend has plusnet and hers is very fast. Depends where you live OP?

I think the only company that do it are Virgin, and they seem expensive.
Have you had a look at Talk Talk or Plus net? You can save a lot on the landline costs by paying for a year in advance just don't plug in the phone. See if you can get some cashback via Topcashback or Quidco.

Inner city flat so no railways or anything near by. What do you pay pcm?

Currently we have a package with everything through a major provider

For broadband I pay £10.00 per month and then I'm with Bt for phone on lite user as I barely use it however it is there for emergencies. And for tv I'm with sky which is costly! But if it ever gets too much I just ring up and say can you do me a deal and they do as they hate loosing a customer....
Anyway you can get phone and broadband with plusnet for £20.00 per month or just broadband for £10.00 there is cheaper packages but obviously they are less MB I have unlimited broadband for £10.00 pm

That is great thanks. Are you trapped into a contract for instance if it does not work.?

Dreamgirls234 Fri 16-May-14 21:49:28

I think you can terminate the contract at any time OP never actually looked that up will check that out now it's got me thinking I'm tempted to go with sky but reluctant because I'd have to go with them for phone and I adore my Bt lite user otherwise I'd be paying for a phone I wouldn't require... But my speed is bad however in other areas plusnet is great but generally speaking our whole area suffers whatever the provider just sky/virgin are faster for my area...

We hae EE broadband and it is �2 a month if you are a Tmobile/Orange or EE mobile customer. Phoneline is �14 a month or �11 a month if you pay 12 months upfront. Internet is perfect for us, I can be on internet, watching Netflix while DH is playing COD online and it can handle all that perfectly. If you sign up through TopCashBack then you will also get �130 cashback after three months. We signed up in February and got �100 cashback, it came through yesterday.

I have Virgin which on the face of it seems pricey though v fast at 60mps

But I don't need to pay £14 a month landline, and although my telly is linked up to it I never watch live TV , only iPlayer C4D etc , so I don't have to buy a TV licence.

So I save £24pm.

Obviously you need cable though.
