Almost two-thirds of British consumers say they would ditch their home phone line if it wasn't needed for fixed-line broadband.
In a study conducted by ISPreview.co.uk, 64.3 per cent said they would no longer use a landline, while 14.7 per cent were undecided.
Just a fifth (20.9 per cent) of respondents said they would definitely keep their home phone, irrespective of whether it was needed for internet connectivity.
It seems the perceived costs of using a landline may be a decisive factor, with 73.9 per cent describing high prices as the "main drawback".
However, changing technology use, and the emergence of mobile services, can also be considered a key factor.
Some 62.3 per cent of survey respondents said they now use a mobile phone most frequently for making calls.
By comparison, just 29.8 per cent claimed to be primarily reliant on their home phone.
