Question: Do You Need A Phone Line To Get The Internet?

Can I have Internet without a phone line?

Even though you can theoretically get cable or fibre broadband without line rental, it can be hard to find a provider actually offering broadband without a landline.

Currently, Virgin Media is the only major ISP that lets you sign up for broadband without a phone line.

Can a phone line be used for Internet?

DSL is a very high-speed connection that uses the same wires as a regular telephone line. You can leave your Internet connection open and still use the phone line for voice calls. The speed is much higher than a regular modem. DSL doesn’t necessarily require new wiring; it can use the phone line you already have.

Do you need a home phone for Internet?

Most broadband deals require a home phone line to be in place, even if you never use it. That said, there are still some options for maintaining internet connectivity without having to pay for a landline you don’t actually use.

Can broadband work without a landline?

Landline cost is included in the overall monthly amount payable for broadband, which means it’s usually not possible to separate out the phone line even if you don’t use it. It’s possible to get broadband without a landline, but you’ll have to shop around first.
