BT has insisted that ensuring clarity around broadband charges is more of a priority than ending charges for unused landlines.

Earlier this week, Culture Minister Ed Vaizey urged broadband providers to stop charging households for services that they do not use, as many are having to pay rental charges for landline connections even if they do not actually make fixed line calls.

However, BT has responded that anyone using broadband uses a landline. As a result, it believes the focus should instead be placed on making sure the pricing structure is as clear it can be for consumers.

Mr Vaizey has asked to meet with representatives of BT, Sky, Virgin Media and TalkTalk to discuss the subject.

Speaking to BBC News, a BT spokesman said: "BT is happy to meet with the minister and other players in the industry to discuss ways of making charges clearer for consumers."
