Broadband and phone deals include your broadband connection and your home phone line packaged in the same monthly plan. Nowadays, lots of us don't even have a home phone plugged in, but a phone line is still required for most broadband connections to work.
Many providers now offer broadband deals without needing to pay for a landline service, but many of these connections still need a phone line to get to your home. So you may see quite a few broadband and home phone deals offered as standard.
But if you still use your landline for call to friends, family or abroad, you could save a fair amount of money each month by bundling your broadband and home phone services together.
All the major providers on Uswitch offer deals that do this, and the majority of them have at least 97% coverage across the UK. So you'll be sure to have plenty of options to choose from if you're looking for a broadband and home phone deal.
Taking a few minutes to compare broadband speeds and monthly prices in your area could not only save you money, but you might even end up with a better service for a cheaper broadband and landline plan, too.
If you're not sure whether to add a home phone service to your broadband deal, here are the top things you should know.
If you rely on your landline for a lot of your phone calls, then you should definitely consider getting a broadband and home phone deal. Since the most widely-available broadband connections need your phone line to work, it would only make sense to get both from the same provider. However, with most mobile phone deals including unlimited free minutes as standard, you might be better off with a cheap SIM only contract if you make a lot of calls. To find out if you could benefit, take a look at our SIM only deals.
If you make or receive international calls to friends, family or colleagues based overseas, it might work out cheaper for you to use a landline.
Home phone deals featuring international calls are often cheaper per month than a standard mobile phone deal if you plan on phoning abroad a lot, or if calling over Wi-Fi or apps like WhatsApp are not suitable for what you need.
Broadband providers that rely on a copper line to get to your home will still need to issue you with an active phone line. And the majority of broadband connections in the UK still use this technology. So in many cases, you can get a landline for no extra cost - and sometimes provider make these deals cheaper than their broadband-only ones.
If the right deal for you comes with a landline, you don’t have to use it. But it may save you money on certain calls if you do, even if you only use it to make the odd call.
However, if your sole reason for having a landline is to connect to broadband and access digital TV, then it might be more cost-effective to compare Uswitch broadband and TV deals or broadband-only deals if they’re available in your postcode.
Once you've decided to add a home phone line to your broadband package, you'll likely have a few options to choose from. Here's how to decide which phone service you need.
Typically, free minutes are available during evenings and on weekends, but some providers include free minutes at any time of the day.
So make sure to look for deals that offer free minutes if you're planning to use your landline a lot.
Be sure to read your provider's terms & conditions to see when your free minutes are applicable — are they for the first ten minutes of a call or the first hour?
Also make sure you know when to hang up to avoid getting overcharged.
If you’re looking to spend hours chatting on the home phone, then look out for deals that include the most minutes. That way, you should get more for your money.
Typically, the longer the commitment, the lower the monthly fee. So if you’re not averse to a 24-month contract, you could end up saving a fair amount on your monthly bill.
Do you use your landline to call mobiles or make international calls? If so, it’s important to check if these types of calls are included in your minutes. If they aren’t, what are the costs?
If you're likely to call mobile phones or speak to people in other countries, you might want to avoid deals that charge extra for these services.
Here are some more things you should keep in mind for all deals you browse:
Check the total cost of your chosen contract by clicking the 'Price Details' button on each of our deals. You can find it right below the monthly price on every deal we display.
Remember to look out for additional charges such as set-up costs and line rental fees to get a good idea of what you might have to pay up front.
And finally, keep in mind any promotional gift vouchers or bill credits when you’re searching. Don't go for a deal just because it has these features, but if you're certain the deal's right for you, make sure you don't miss out on them either. They could knock a big chunk off the total cost of the contract.

As the name would suggest, phone and broadband deals work by bundling the cost of your broadband with the cost of a landline for an often cheaper rate. And they often come with call packages that include free evening and weekend calls. You may also get a number of other benefits, including discounted international call rates, low monthly line rental fees or anytime calls.
And while landlines are being used less and less to make calls, they are often necessary to allow you to access the most widely-available types of home broadband installed in your home. So, if your property can’t yet receive a full fibre broadband connection, you will need to rely on your home phone line to get a reliable broadband connection anyway.
Although it might not be high on your list of priorities, there can be savings to be had if you use your landline. So if you end up with a landline connection because your broadband provider requires one to provide your internet, you might as well have a look at the features it offers in case it can save you some money.
As you might expect, all of the major UK broadband providers, including BT, Sky, Virgin Media, EE and TalkTalk, offer broadband and home phone deals. Here, we’ll walk you through the different providers and what they offer to help you decide which one to choose:
If TalkTalk’s full fibre service is available in your area and you want to sign up, you won’t need a landline. However, if you’re taking out one of TalkTalk's superfast fibre broadband, you'll still need a phone line for it to work. Luckily, line rental is included in these plans, so you won’t have to worry about getting one set up.
TalkTalk’s landline offers are excellent value by anyone’s standards. You can add on unlimited UK calls from just £7 a month (although this increases by £2 for plans taken out from 1 June 2022). And even better, you can get 1,000 minutes of international calls to 50 countries for £7 a month for the first six months (increasing to £14 a month after that).
The best thing about these add-ons is that they’re on a one-month rolling contract. So you can add or remove them at any time.
Unlike many other providers, Virgin Media operates independently with the use of its own cable network. Therefore, it can offer broadband-only deals that don’t include a landline.
However, Virgin Media still offers a range of broadband and home phone bundles that are well worth considering if you make a lot of calls to friends and family.
The deals that include a landline tend to come with free weekend calls to other landlines. There’s also the option to pay for extras, such as inclusive calls to UK mobiles and international minutes.
Since Virgin Media has merged with O2, it might work out cheaper for you to opt for an O2 SIM instead of a Virgin Media landline when signing up for your broadband package. So be sure to compare prices before you commit.
Although you no longer need to have a landline to get BT broadband, there are several advantages to signing up for one.
For one thing, it has a range of plans, from Pay As You Go, which allows you to just pay for what you use, all the way to an unlimited minutes package that covers calls to other UK landlines and mobiles at any time of the day or night.
It also gives you the option of paying for an international calls add-on, which could save you a significant amount of money if you regularly call friends or family who are overseas.
On top of this, you’ll also get access to BT Protect, which works to block nuisance calls.
At the time of writing, all Sky broadband packages, including standard broadband, superfast fibre and ultrafast, require you to take a landline. However, the inclusive broadband and landline packages Sky offers are pretty reasonable.
When you sign up for a Sky broadband and phone package, you’ll get pay as you go calls included as standard. This means that if you never use your landline, you won’t be charged anything extra.
However, if you regularly use your landline, you’ll be better off adding on a Sky Talk package. This can include evening and weekend calls, anytime calls or international calls, depending on which plan you choose.
There are loads of different broadband and home phone deals available, depending on your needs and the provider you’re signing up with. But broadly speaking, most providers will offer the following:
Free evening and weekend calls
Full fibre broadband
Anytime phone deals
International call packages

Here are the main benefits and downsides to a home phone and broadband package. Find out if this service would be right for you.
Here are some reasons why a broadband and landline deal could benefit you and your household.
The most widely-available types of broadband in the UK are superfast part-fibre and copper ADSL, both of which require a phone line to work. This is because they use the same copper cables as landlines do to get to your home.
So if you’re looking to choose one of the types of internet listed below, a broadband and landline deal would be very easy to set up. Plus, they’re sometimes the same price as their broadband-only alternatives.
Home broadband connections that require a phone line:
|Superfast part-fibre||30-70Mbps||97%||From £20p/m|
|Copper ADSL||10-11Mbps||99%||From £17p/m|
But your choices don't have to end there. While these connections need a landline to work, you can still choose a phone line option with other types of broadband, too.
Virgin Media, plus most full fibre deals on offer in the UK, give you the option to add a phone line via their broadband cables - which is good to consider if you want faster broadband and a home phone service. Just be mindful that these bundles will likely come with higher monthly prices than part-fibre or ADSL deals.
Most Uswitch broadband providers offer a number of services bundled into one single monthly bill.
So if you happen to be with separate broadband and home phone providers, a deal that encompasses both could end up being cheaper and easier to pay off, provided you regularly use each service.
One of the main benefits of having a landline is that you can often get cheaper international calls than you can on your mobile.
A lot of providers have special add-ons that will give you a generous allowance of minutes so you can call friends and family from overseas without worrying about running up a huge bill.
To find out more about this, take a look at our guide on international calls.
Keep these things in mind before you sign up for a new broadband and home phone plan.
The most important reason to think carefully before you take out a home phone deal is that you might not get the full value out of it, compared to what you could do with your existing. mobile phone plan already.
After all, the vast majority of mobile phone deals now come with unlimited free calls to UK landlines and mobiles. So you may end up not using your landline at all if you use your mobile for calls already.
Popular providers like BT and Sky, as well as full fibre providers like Hyperoptic, offer their home phone services at an additional cost. This is different to other providers like Plusnet, TalkTalk and NOW Broadband, as their cheapest options currently come with a landline service too.
So if you're looking to use your landline with your next broadband deal, you may have to pay extra for the privilege. Having said that, bundling it will still often be cheaper than paying for a separate service.
If you don't plan on using a landline, though, you can simply choose a broadband-only option with relevant providers for a cheaper monthly price.
It’s worth noting that some of the cheapest broadband and phone deals don't include line rental, but will start charging it once you fall out of contract. So make sure to check your contract end date and switch your broadband provider to avoid an expensive price hike.
Some of the largest broadband providers also let you bundle TV packages with their broadband and phone line packages. This means that you can pay for all three services in the same monthly bill, which could save you a lot of money if you currently pay a separate TV bill with another provider.
Broadband providers that let you add TV to your tariff include Sky, Virgin Media, BT, TalkTalk and NOW. The TV channels and services on offer from each differ quite a lot, with Sky and Virgin Media considered to offer the most content. However, they often have the most expensive TV offerings as a result.
The other providers will still give you access to great TV content, but you might be less likely to access top-drawer exclusives like Sky Sports and Sky Cinema.
