*The "up to" speed displayed in Mb is the maximum possible speed you are likely to receive for this product. The actual speed you will get depends on your cabling, your area and (with non-fibre optic products) time of day and how far you are from the telephone exchange. Most providers will tell you the likely speed you will receive when you begin your online sign up - this may differ from the speed displayed in the table.

The deals available at your postcode are subject to local availability. The provider will confirm availability for your line.

We aim to take the strain out of broadband comparison. Good broadband deals aren't just about the price, it's also about what's included in the product, the speeds offered and any extra incentives providers are offering. To balance all of these, we have developed a ranking formula that takes into account deals that are proving to be popular with our customers, that are competitive in the maket and have a smooth switching process.

If you prefer, you can sort deals by the average monthly cost, which is all of the costs - including any compulsory upfront costs such as router delivery or installation fee - divided by the length of the contract. Or you can sort by the total contract cost for all packages which let’s you see the total spend for the whole contract period

Why pay for landline rental when you don’t have to? Here we’ll examine all the great 'broadband without phone line' options that will allow to cut your costs and say goodbye to renting a landline forever.

Why go without a landline?

More and more Britons are using their mobile phone for the overwhelming majority of their calls. If you're among them, you may feel that renting a landline means you are paying for a service of which you make very little use.

This is especially relevant in the light of the increasingly generous call minutes allowances provided by UK mobile phone network carriers, many of which offer ample usage for your day-to-day needs.

What’s more, with landline rentals currently charged at around £11 per month (depending on provider), consumers can save over £130 by going without a home phone and relying on mobile instead.

Fibre optic broadband without a phone line

Virgin Media’s standalone fibre optic broadband packages do not require landline rental. These are Broadband L, Broadband XL and Broadband XXL.

Although these are a little more expensive than some other providers’ offerings, they stand out for offering outstanding connection speeds. XL and XXL Broadband customers, for instance, benefit from super fast connection speeds of up to 50Mbps. In locales where Virgin Media has upgraded its network, this rises to a maximum speed of 60Mbps for L customers and 100Mbps for XL subscribers

All XXL customers can get up to 100Mb, while those who are lucky enough to be in area upgraded by Virgin Media can get a whopping 152Mbps.

Virgin Media is able to offer its service without phone line rental because it employs its own fibre optic network instead of the more conventional method of using a BT copper wire telephone line. And no telephone line, of course, means no telephone line rental.

Mobile broadband without a phone line

Mobile broadband delivers an internet connection over the air via 3G or 4G mobile phone networks, meaning that people who choose this option do not need to have a telephone landline to get on the internet. Actually getting online is simply a case of inserting a dongle – a device best described as a portable modem – and you’re good to go.

What’s more, because there is so much competition in the mobile broadband sector, it’s possible to find some outstanding deals. The majority of mobile broadband deals work on a monthly contract basis, with subscribers paying a monthly charge for a predetermined amount of usage. Currently, consumers can choose from standalone 3G or 4G mobile broadband packages from Three, O2, Vodafone, Virgin Media and EE.

Another advantage of choosing mobile broadband is that you can choose a pay as you go broadband deal. Just like mobile phone pay as you go offers, customers can simply purchase credit as and when they need it and get online straight away. This is a terrific and highly cost-effective option for people who are light internet users and who are unlikely to require substantial download limits.

MiFi mobile broadband without a phone line

As with dongles, MiFi units use 3G or 4G mobile phone networks to get customers on to the internet. However, they differ from dongles in the respect that they allow people to use a single connection to get online with multiple 3G/4G internet enabled devices, such as games consoles and laptops. This makes them especially apt for student households and for families.

Currently, relatively few providers offer MiFi mobile broadband options. However, notable exceptions are Three, Vodafone and EE.

What are the disadvantages of broadband without landline?

For all that broadband without a landline deals can be highly cost-effective, they are not without disadvantages. These include:

  • Bundled broadband and home phone deals typically offer some fantastically attractive call rates, with many featuring free calls at certain times of day or weekends. So if you don’t make much use of your mobile and are more inclined to make calls on your home phone, it may be cheaper and better for you to sign up to one of these.

  • It’s often a very good idea to have a landline in case of emergencies. For instance, in the event that your mobile phone network goes down due to a technical fault, you would be unable to contact emergency services.
